VOLUME XXII— NUMBER 30 


APRIL 8 ,. 1961 



The many faceted success story of Frank Sinatra recently added another chapter when the “Ring-a-ding-dinger” formed his own Reprise 
label and signed such stars as Sammy Davis, Jr., Mort Sahl, Joe E. Lewis, Mavis Rivers and Ben Webster. Under his own banner, the “Chair- 
man of the Board” is clicking with his “Second Time Around” single — a tune nominated for an “Oscar.” His first LP, soon-to-be-released, 
is appropriately titled “Ring-A-Ding-Ding.” The new Reprise disker y is also perking with a single by the Link Eddy Combo dubbed “Big Mr. C.”

During the next few months, the 
record industry enters its conven- 
tion season. On April 25-28, NARM 
(National Association of Record 
Merchandisers— the rack jobbers) 
will hold its convention at the Eden 
Roc Hotel in Miami Beach. On May 
15-17, MOA (Music Operators of 
America— the juke box ops) con- 
vene at the Deauville Hotel in 
Miami Beach. On June 26 & 27, 
ARMADA (American Record Man- 
ufacturers and Distributors Assn.) 
will hold its meet at the Diplomat 
Hotel in Hollywood, Fla. And on 
July 16-20, NAMM (National As- 
sociation of Music Merchants— the 
dealers) holds its event at the 
Palmer House in Chicago. 

These four conventions are held 
each year to improve an industry in 
which we all make our livings. They 
are designed to establish healthier 
business practices, solve mutual 
problems, improve operating con- 
ditions, erase difficulties, display 
new products and in general pro- 
vide a more solid foundation for 
our industry’s continued growth 
and development. 

Unfortunately, what these con- 
ventions are designed to do and 
what they actually accomplish var- 
ies considerably. Partly because im- 
portant individuals and firms which 
should be represented at these 
meetings never show. But the pri- 
mary reason for the discrepancy 
between the conventions’ intent and 


accomplishments is the negative at- 
titude most individuals bring with 
them to these conclaves. 

A convention can only be as 
good and as productive as the sup- 
port it gets from its members. The 
lack of faith on the part of the con- 
ventioneers only eradicates the 
great effort being made by the con- 
ventions’ executives. 

A convention is not a Messiah. It 
cannot save all. It cannot eradicate 
all of the business’ ailments and 
evils in one visit. It may not even 
erase one at a sitting. But a sincere 
effort is heing made by all conven- 
tion leaders. Past conventions have 
resulted in tangible benefits for 
many. Last year’s ARMADA meet 
played an important role in the 
fight against record counterfeiters. 
Rack jobbers at their NARM meet- 
ings have found great mutual bene- 
fit from their discussions and pan- 
els and NARM continues to grow as 
a strong working convention of 
major importance to the record in- 
dustry. 

Future conventions can be of 
still greater aid to the record indus- 
try. But this can be accomplished 
only with strong support from 
members of the various associa- 
tions. It is imperative that we all 
have faith in the associations and 
play an active part in working to- 
ward their goals. Don’t expect 
miracles. Accept even a little prog- 
ress.

The Cosh Box 


Pick of the Week 


“SAVED” (2:37) “DON JUAN” (2:20) 

[Progressive, Trio BMI — [Progressive, Trio BMI — 

Leiber, Stroller] Leiber, Stroller] 

LAVERN BAKER (Atlantic 2099) 

This is, without a doubt, the most sensational two-sider Miss Baker has 
cut to date. The “Saved” side features an electrifying performance on a 
Salvation Army theme. It’s a fast moving session that builds to a fan- 
tastic finish. The enticing rock-a-cha-cha, “Don Juan,” deals with a lover 
who’s losing his chick cause he lost his loot. Stellar, all-around perform- 
ance by Lavern and the Leiber & Stoller (who also cleffed ’em both) oi'k- 
choral group. 

“THE BILBAO SONG” (2:09) [Harms ASCAP— Brecht, Weill, Mercer] 
“HOW WONDERFUL TO KNOW” (2:15) 

[Leeds ASCAP — Goell, Manlio, d’Esposito] 

ANDY WILLIAMS (Cadence 1398) 

“The Bilbao Song,” the Kurt (“Mack The Knife”) Weill tune (from 
“Happy Ending”) getting new instrumental readings, here has snappy 
English lyrics by Johnny Mercer and a sparkling hint-of-th-20’s sound 
from songster Williams and the oi'k-chorus. Performer attractively 
warbles an English version of a familiar Italian tune (“Aneme Core”) 
on the flipside. 


“TRAGEDY” (2:40) [Bluff City BMI— Nelson, Burch] 
“LITTLE MISS SAD ONE” (2:40) [Camarillo BMI— Glasser] 

THE FLEETWOODS (Dolton 40) 

“Tragedy,” the years-back Thomas Wayne hit, is strikingly revived by 
the talented songsters, who employ their familiar velvety blend. A touch- 
ing performance that can take the tune to new chart heights. Team offers 
another plaintive softie with “Sad One.” 


“LULLABYE OF LOVE” (2:10) 

[Harvest, Recherche ASCAP — Michals, Muskin, Mann] 
“TONIGHT IS OUR LAST NIGHT” (2:02) 

[Harvest, Recherche ASCAP — Gari, Muskin, Glaser, Glaser] 
FRANK GARI (Crusade 1021) 

Youngster checks in with a sales heavyweight follow-up to his Crusade 
ballad-bow, “Utopia.” The new one is an inviting, rock-a-string romancer 
that Gari and the ork-chorus sock out in very commercial fashion. Bob 
Mersey’s crew supplies the potent backdrop. “Tonight Is Our Last Night” 
is a string-filled rock-a-cha-cha winner on the other half. 


“LIKE A FOOL” (2:23) [Travis BMI— Burnette] 

“FORGET IT” [Leeds ASCAP— Discant, Altman] 

BOB BECKHAM (Decca 31239) 

Beckham should head back to hitsville with this one. It’s a poignant 
romantic ballad, labeled “Like A Fool,” that Bob smoothly reads with 
heartfelt emotion. Splendid chorus and string support on a lid that 
reaches dramatic peaks towards the middle and closing segments. The 
warm, attractive ballad pairing, “Forget It,” should not be forgotten by 
the platter spinners. 


“LET’S DO THE 
CONTINENTAL” (2:48) 

[Islip BMI — Doggett] 


“PONY WALK” (2:12) 
[Sylvia BMI — Roker, Clark] 


BILL DOGGETT (Warner Bros. 5209) 


The vet organist-maestro leads his aggregation thru two new dance 
treats that should be attracting loads of teen attention in the weeks to 
come. They’re two engaging sides, the thumping “Let’s Do The Con- 
tinental” and the “Pony Walk” combination, that look like solid money- 
makers. 


"IN BETWEEN TEARS” (2:13) [Ludix BMI— Dixon, Rogers, Elgin] 
“I KNOW LOVE” (2:40) [Lloyd-Logan BMI— McCoy, Dixon] 
LENNY MILES (Scepter 1218) 

Miles, who broke thru with his “Don’t Believe Him, Donna,” can make 
it two-in-a-row with “In Between Tears.” It’s a string-filled rock-a-cha- 
cha that Miles knocks out in money-making fashion. Keep close tabs 
on it. Chanter also shines in the beat-ballad spotlight with “I Know 
Love.” Pretty deck. 

nmnimTurnT —

(B+) “HONKY TONK TRAIN” 
(2:18) [Shapiro-Bernstein AS-

ASCAP — Bacon, Lovett]

sound. A strong date from the per- 
former.

(2:18) [Roncom ASCAP — 
Vance, Gluck] Somewhat folkish ditty 
is given a catchy-beat view.

esting guitar and percussion bits

sound that made the rounds several 
years ago. 


LENNY ROCCO (Delsey 301) 

(B) “ROCHELLE” (2:21) [Lou- 
win ASCAP — Rocco, Thomas] 
The singer handles the name-song

PART I” (1:55) [Kel BMI— 
Kenner] Vocalist and combo-chorus do 
a twist-beat session with lots of up- 
beat polish. Session ought to be . 
around for hoptime spins. Vehicle is 
not the old click. Label is handled by 
Valiant Records. 

(B) “I LIKE IT LIKE THAT, 
PART 2” (1:55) [Tune-Kel 
BMI — Kenner, Toussaint] Solid- 
sounding stuff is continued without 
the lead voice.

[Starfire & Flaka BMI — 
Claunch, Robley, Maynard] Combined 
efforts of guitars-keyboard percus- 
sions-sax produce a solid-sounding 
novelty-rock instrumental. Contagious 
stand that could catch-on. 

(B) “TAMMY” (1:59) [Northern 

ASCAP — Evans, Livingston] v , 
Sax heads a sly rock-a-cha treatment 
of the familiar tune, which has almost 
reached evergreen status. 


THE FABULOUS IDOLS 

(Kenco 5011) 

(B+) “BABY” (2:55) [Belleclaire 
BMI — Roland] Lead and other

standard blueser is done with inter- 
esting sock instrumentation. 


THE STUDENTS (Argo 5386) 

(B+) “I’M SO YOUNG” [Vance 
BMI — Tyus] Group’s years- 
back session, a territorial success, ap- 
pears on the Argo label here. Com-

could action anew. Very persuasive 
warbling.

WEEK” [Vance BMI— Tyus]

by the group.

displays a speedy chimes-like teen 
sound, with the lead singing against 
chants from the rest of the team. 

(B+) “CHAPEL BELLS” (2:21) 
[Wildcat BMI — Passalacqua] 

An R&B-styled “return” of a tender 
ballad stint that made territorial noise 
awhile-back.

DEL VIKINGS (ABC-Paramount 10208) 

The veteran Del Vikings of “Come Go With Me” fame, are back on the 
winning track once again with a potent string-filled, beat-filled, teenage 
deck right in today’s groove with a powerful new platter dubbed “Bring 
Back Your Heart.” Has all the earmarks of a biggie. Flip is an interest- 
ingly done beat-ballad affair.

“TWO LITTLE GIRLS” (2:10) [Marlyn ASCAP— Westlake] 
MARK WYNTER (London 1973) 

English songster Mark Wynter makes his U.S. bow via this London out- 
ing. It’s a lovely, up beat romantic opus, titled “Dream Girl,” that took 
runner-up honors in the recent “Song For Europe” contest. Can also cop 
laurels here. However, don’t overlook the soft, teen-beat cha cha pretty, 
“Two Little Girls.” It also has chart appeal. 


“TAMMY” (2:13) “UNCHAINED MELODY” (2:45) 

[Northern ASCAP— [Frank ASCAP— Zaret, North] 


BETSY JONES (Warner Bros. 5214)

Feist ASCAP — Thompson, 
Archer] The fine old sentimental gets 
a solid legit ballad vocal from the

tractive sax-included ork stint. Tal- 
ented lark is worth exposure here.

(2:22) [Laurel ASCAP — Pit- 
man] Similar tender warbling in this 
corner. Watch it too.

(B+) “JUST WAIT ’TIL I GET 
YOU ALONE” [Acuff-Rose 
BMI — F&B Bryant] Singer warbles 
the romantic ditty against a busy, 
good-sounding combo beat. Polished 
teen-beat work.

BYE” [Acuff-Rose BMI— Bry- 
ant, Webb] This tender teen narra- 
tive concerns a fella’s “Dear John” to 
the gal. 


JAMIE COE (ABC-Paramount 10203) 

(B+) “TWO DOZEN AND A 
HALF” (2:08) [Music Devel- 
opment BMI — Lane] Solid sock-rock 
stuff for the kids. Coe belts out a 
novelty about a fella who gives the 
grocery man a confusing order after 
spying a cutey in the store. Fine 
romp from the combo-chorus. Might 
move. 

(B+) “I’M GETTIN’ MARRIED” 
(2:30) [Trinity BMI — Barry, 
Raleigh] A milder rock-a-cha sound 
with chimes effects throughout. Fetch- 
ing etching. 


NINO & THE EBB TIDES 

(Marco 105) 

(B+) “SOMEDAY” (2:18) [Monu- 
ment BMI — Mazzaglia!] Lead U: 
and other songsters give a good 
“oldie”-styled account of the familiar- 
sounding ballad, not to be confused 1 
with the operetta standard. Kids have 
a well-done romantic entry. 

(B) “LITTLE MISS BLUE” (2:06) 
[Monument BMI — Mazzaglia, 
Aiello] Boys nicely portray the plain- 
tive. Diskery operates out of New 
York.

Got To Find Another)” (2:35)

BMI — Supremes] A tender-beat stand 
done in the “oldie” manner that’s -«■ j|!|

quarters in Sauk City, Wise. 


JOHNNY STEWART (Shelley 128) 

(B) “COME ON AND LOVE ME” 
(2:29) [CFG BMI — Jones] 
Stewart conveys the good blues-ballad 
with impressive feeling. Both R&B & 
pop audiences will appreciate this is- 
sue.

IN’” (2:07) [CFG Clai- 
borne BMI— Tribble] Artist tries an 
upbeat blueser here. 


Livingston, Evans] 

FRED ELLIS (Coral 62264) 

Two old-timers with brand new formats can give Fred Ellis his chart 
break. One half is a superb beat-ballad job on “Tammy,” Debbie Rey- 
nolds’ while-back success. Its bongos and strings on the quick-beat up- 
dating of “Unchained Melody.” Standout choral-ork support by the 
Henry Jerome-led outfit. An artist to watch. 


“THERE’S NO ONE BUT YOU” (2:31) 
[Shapiro-Bernstein ASCAP — Evans, Johnson] 


TAB SMITH (B&F 1348) 

(B) “MOONSTONE” (2:49) [Fred-

liard] Sweet swingin’ from the artist 
and organ-included backing. 


THE VINES (Cee Jay 582) 

(B+) “LOVE SO SWEET” (2:15) 
[Gaitwood BMI — Bronner] 
Vocalists — sporting a fine-sounding 
lead — offer an infectious R&B-flavor- 
ed blend. Can be of import in both 
R&B & pop fields. 

(B) “I MUST SEE YOU AGAIN” 
(2:20) [Kae Williams^-Gait- 
wood] Boys have a warmer R&B-ish 
attitude here. Tune is pleasing. 


"COME ON OVER” (2:29) [David Jones BMI— Evans, Cerrin] 
THE STROLLERS (Carlton 546) 

Look for the Strollers to come thru in a big chart way with this Carlton 
issue. Boys do beat-ballad justice to a haunting, hip-swingin’ romancer 
tabbed “There’s No One But You.” Should really please the teeners. 
“Come On Over” finds the crew rockin’ with infectious glee. 


“PACHANGA BABY” (2:29) 

[Almimo BMI — Randazzo, Barberis, Wilding] 
“BLUSHING GIRL” (2:49) [Marguy, Hyannis BMI— Tinory] 


DON COLE (Coed 548) 

(B+) “SQUAD CAR” (2:12) [Des- 
ert Palms BMI — Cole, Long]

rected instrumental. Interesting ap- 
proach should interest the kids.

er paced rock item from the guitar 
and accompaniment. 


JIMMY THOMAS (B&F 1349) 

(B) “I’M A STRANGER” (2:41) 
[Brandom ASCAP — Watts, 
James, Herman] Guy wants hi^ gal’s 
affections back in this dramatic rock- 
a-cha date by the vocalist. Combo 
tags-along with steady upbeat sound. 

(C+) “I WANNA CRY” (2:28) 
[Frederick BMI — James, Kel- 
ly] Light jump to this lovey-dovey. 


BOBBY & BILLY (United Artists 305) 

Bobby & Billy hop aboard the ‘paehanga-charanga’ band-wagon with this 
sensational version of the new dance craze. It’s a tantalizing, hand- 
clapping performance with popular Latin maestro Tito Rodriguez & his 
ork, colorfully backing up the boys’ dandy vocal job. Artists are in a 
fetching beat-ballad pose flipside. 


“I’M A FOOL TO CARE” [Peer Int’l BMI— Daffan] 

"I GOT A FEELING” [Flat Town, Crazy Cajun BMI — Barrios] 
JOE BARRY (Smash 1702) 

I’M A FOOL TO CARE” [Peer Int’l BMI— Daffan] 


JOHNNY MADARA (Bamboo 503)

LY” (2:10) [Venice BMI — 
Blackwell, Marascalco] The old Lit- 
tle Richard hit is brought back with 
good teen vitality by singer Madara

job on the catchy theme. Good rock 
attack.

highlight of this quick-beat session. 
Both ends include a sax solo. 


“I GOT A FEELING” [Flat Town, Crazy Cajun] 

OSCAR BLACK (Savoy 1600) 

“I’m A Fool To Care” should soon be popping up all over the hit lists. 
Two versions of the tune appeared on the wax mart this week — one 
by Joe Barry (on a Mercury purchase of the original master from 
Jin — and put on the Smash label) and one by Savoy’s Oscar Black. It’s 
a rolling blues-ballad handled, by both, in soulful, Fats Domino-like 
fashion. Backing on both decks, “I Got A. Feeling,” is a slower blues 
session. 


NAPPY BROWN (Savoy 1598) 

(B+) “DON’T BE ANGRY” [Savoy 
BMI — McCoy, Mendelssohn] 
A re-recording of the R&B songster’s 
two-market years-back hit. Its catchy 
jump sound could win new friends and 
again interest its old fans. 

(B) “ANY TIME IS THE RIGHT 
TIME” [Savoy BMI — Her- 
man] Shout-type blueser from the 
performer and combo-chorus backing.

(B+) “JOOGIE BOOGIE (2:18) 
[Sheldon BMI — Kirkland, 
Woods] Vocalists tell of a lively, 
Lindy-styled teen-step with good big- 
beat humor. Combo sound is conta- 
gious. Reliable session for those hop 
stints. 

(B+) “IF I ONLY HAD MAGIC” 
(2:25) Joli BMI — Blandon, 
Gardner] Lead voice turns-the-tables 
here as he nicely surveys the ro- 
mantic. Flute is part of the soft-beat 
setting.

LITTLE BESSIE (Amy 816) 

(B) “FOR YOUR LOVE (I Shed 

A Million Tears)” (1:49) [Je- ■’ 
neva BMI — King] Thrush hands-in a 
dynamic blues vocal on the ditty and

Bluestone] 


LOWELL FULSON (Checker 972) 


BOBBY KEENE (Coral 62260) 

Youngster can grab the national spotlight with either end (or both) 
here. “Move Over Angels” is an inviting romancer on the up beat side. 
“Listen Little Girl” is an extremely pretty love affair taken for a soft 
beat cha cha ride. Fine, teen-styled ork-choral assist credits belong to 
Henry Jerome & Co. 


“CRAZY YOGI” (2:28) [Garrett Dorsey] 

“WHEN YOU’RE DANCIN’ WITH ME (2:00) [Garrett Dorsey] 
BERNADETTE & HER SWINGIN’ BEARS (Beach 1001) 

The new Beach outfit can get off swinging with this striking rock-a- 
cha-cha thumper that bows young Bernadette and her Swingin’ Bears. 
Side to watch is “Crazy Yogi.” It’s loaded' with those teen-angled vocal 
and instrumental sounds. More of the same sock cha-cha-rock work on 
the “When You’re Dancin’ With Me.” 


The Cash Box 


Best Bets 


LORI ELLEN (Beltone 1007) 

(B) “(I Don’t Need A) VENTRIL- 

OQUIST” (2:15) [Steven 
BMI — Nader, Adams] Guy will no 
longer play the gal for a dummy, the 
lark raps out in a speedy rock-beat 
manner. Lively romantic-novelty 
track.

pose, a romantic based on the old kid- 
die phrase. 


BETTY FREEMAN (Bargain 1008) 

(B) “I’LL NEVER LET HIM GO” 
(2:00) [Y Plus X BMI— Os- 
borne] Songstress packs a pro blues 
punch in this infectious date. Musi- 
cians back-up with a fine novelty- 
blues sound. Diskery is based in New 
York.

(2:07) [Arc BMI — Fulson] 
Slow, deeply moving display of a 
raunchy “down home” blues tale. Ful- *

hard rock beat combo support. For the 
r&b marts.

Continuation of the above to a rousing 
climax. 


ROBIN WILSON (Monument 439)

[Acuff-Rose BMI — Kershaw] 
Singer Wilson and the combo-chorus 
accompaniment brightly display the 
catchy opus, which is making both pop 
& country noise via the Rusty & Doug 
deck on Hickory. Well-done pop-di- 
rected view of the ditty.. 


BERNIE LAWRENCE 
(Warner Bros. 5216) 

(B+) “DAY TIME, NIGHT TIME” 
(2:15) [Anax BMI — Lawrence, 
Lawrence, Ergas] Artist, brother of 
Steve Lawrence, could get chart ac- 
tion with this mostly multi-tracked 
display of a catchy romancer. Strings 
and femme chorus top the bouncy 
setting. Should be eyed. 

(B+) “STAY OUT OF MY 
DREAMS” (2:36) [Anax BMI 
— Lawrence, Ergas] This more dra- 
matic slice is also solidly in touch 
with teen sounds. Also worth watch- 
ing. Two potent performances for 
Bernie. He could be a big name in the 
weeks to come. 


BUDDY GUY (Chess 1784) 

(B+) “LET ME LOVE YOU 
BABY” (2:31) [Arc BMI— 
Dixon] Artist poses aggressively on 
a stomping, solid rock upbeat blues 
stanza. A wailing band accounts for 
lots of the attractiveness here. Power- 
house for the r&b markets, with pop 
potential. 

(B+) “TEN YEARS AGO” (2:29) 
[Arc BMI — Guy] Here Guy 
relates to his roots with a languidly 
slow, beguiling blues ballad in the 
“down-home” tradition. An earthy per- 
formance. Also has R&B chart 
strength. 


JAN ARLEN (Brunswick 55210) 

(B+) “JUST OUT OF REACH” 
(2:40) [East-West ASCAP— 
Biagman, Cari] New thrush gets to 
the wistful heart of the wistful about 
a love just out of a gal’s reach. Feel- 
ingful combo-chorus stint supports. 
With enough exposure side could hap- 
pen.

the popular pony beat. Watch it. 

(B+) “THAT’S WHERE THE 

HURT COMES IN” (2:45) 
[Cedarwood BMI — Westberry, Gray] 
This heartfelt ballad is handled in 
soft, sincere country-angled fashion. 


BOB CREWE 

(ABC — Paramount 1973) 

(B+) “SWINGIN’ FAMILY TREE” 
(3:11) [Conley ASCAP— 
Crewe] Crewe’s bow on the Ampar 
label can turn out to be a solid coin- 
catching venture. Artist, in rockin’ 
style, tells about a family where each 
member is proficient in a dance step. 
Strong session that can step out. 

(B) “LA LA LORETTA” (2:40) 
[Conley ASCAP — Crewe] Lots 
of haunting sounds on this Latin- 
flavored echo-chamber-styled opus 
with whistling.

(Home of the Blues 231) 

(B+) “CONTINENTAL TIME” 
(2:25) [Hara BMI— Camp] Vet 
songster latches-on to the step whose 
various newly released disk versions 
indicate it may be the next teen-dance 
favorite. Birdsong and his combo- 
chorus accompaniment offer a solid 
reading. 

(B) “LITTLE SCHOOL GIRL” 
(2:07) [Katrina BMI — Gar- 
ner] More catchy doings by the pro 
performer. 


(B) “WHAT CAN I DO” (2:05)

instrument heads this teen-wise 
combo belt. A “listening” rocker that 
could make a stir. 

(B) “TROUBLE ON MAIN 
STREET” (2:19) [Pattern & 
Balladeer ASCAP — Coe] More wild 
guitar-featured sounds from the crew, 
which knows how to dish-out a teen- 
beat affair. 


HAROLD ATKINS (Apt 25058) 

(B) “TE NI NUCHA NU” (2:30) 

[Pamco BMI — Atkins, Kirk- 
land] Lively lovey-dovey blueser in 
which both the songster and gal 
chorus make happy use of the title bit. 
Musicians provide a solid upbeat at- 
tack. 

(B) “PLEASE, PLEASE” (2:21) 

[Arc BMI — Atkins, Owens] 
The pleader is done with a hard blues- 
bounce touch.

(B) “HOW YOU CHANGED” 
(2:15) [Arc BMI — Williams, 
Bass] Lass gives a rough-and-tumble 
blues belt delivery about a hubby 
who’s changed for worse since he’s 
been married. Good sock beat for R&B 
audiences. 

(B) “WORKING ON ME BABY” 
(2:40) [Arc BMI — Dixon, 
Topsy, Bass] Somewhat similar sound 
from the lark. Deck has a flavor of the 
years-back success, “Dance With Me 
Henry.” 


(B) “YVONNE” (2:20) [Target 
BMI — Wilson, Cleve] Good- 
sounding light-beat guitar statement 
backs Wilson’s tale about a love gone 
astray. 


SWEETPEA JOHNSON 

(Liberty 55315) 

(B+) “THE CRAWDAD SCENE” 
(2:40) [Central Songs BMI — 
Allison, Allison, Strange] Fine happy- 
sounding blueser with both listening & 
dancing (Lindy) polish for the kids. 
Johnson belts against a bright har- 
monica-included combo-chorus romp. ■ 

(B) “HOW COME MY DOG 
DON’T GROWL AT YOU” 
(2:40) [Central Songs BMI — Wil- 
liams] Bouncy novelty blues affair 
from the artist and his assemblage. 


RAY PHILLIPS (Boyd 3039) 

(B+) “SAY NOW” (2:14) [Knob 
Hill BMI — Riley] A new doll 
in town, says the songster in this pol- 
ished rock romp. Solid attack from the 
musicians. The Oklahoma City-based 
label has a teen-wise session here. 

(B) “LOVE TO LAST” (2:13) - 

[Knob Hill BMI — Riley) As 
the title indicates, this portion is done 
with a poignant-rock sound. 


MARC HAVEN (Villa Yore 202) 

(B) “HEY SENORITA” (2:00) 
[Raljo BMI — Osterhout] 
Sounds from the combo are intriguing 
in this Spanish-flavored blueser. Be- 
sides Songster Haven’s vocal, there’s 
solid remarks from a chorus. Interest- 
ing issue for the kids. 

(C+) “JANICE” (2:35) [Raljo BMI 
— Osterhout] A familiar- 
sounding name-song done in a senti- 
mental-beat vocal-cobo vein.

Best Bets 


LORENZO & THE FOUR STARS 
(Kapp 381) 

(B+) “FIRST THINGS FIRST” 
(2:36) [Sheldon BMI — 
Raleigh, Wolf] A very attractive por- 
trayal of a pretty romancer by the 
team’s feelingful lead, who is sup- 
ported by a big rock-a-string (& 
chanting chorus) sound. Portion could 
develop into a chart click. 

(B) “A MAN” (2:52) [Sheldon 
BMI — Martin] The lead under- 
standingly relays the inspirational. 

WILLY MILLOWITSCH (Dot 16202) 

(B+) “SCHNAPS” (2:10) [Gil-Rex 
BMI — Gaze, Schwenn] The 
original session of a recent German 
hit, a lively German-sung polka, that 
could get solid U.S.-market coin. 
Catchy goings-on to eye. 

(B) “ICH HALT’ MICH AN DER 
THERE FEST” (2:22) [Gil- 
Rex BMI — Jussenhoven, Breiten] A 
lilting waltzer, also warbled in Ger- 
man. 


THE DANES (Le Cam 718) 

(B+) “MOST OF ALL” (2:38) [Arc 
BMI — Fuqua, Freed] Song- 
sters invitingly revive the years-back 
success for today’s teen market. Lots 
of youngsters will welcome this warm- 
beat sound. Could happen again. 

(B) “COME ON BABY” (2:00) 
[LeBill BMI— Smith, How- 
ard] Good-sounding light-beat shuffle 
on this track. 


CAROL & JOAN (Pioneer 7001) 

(B+) “WE’RE JUST FRIENDS” 
(2:20) [Pokvann BMI — 
Becker, Sloekin] Lots of feelingful 
teen tenderness in this blend by the 
gals, who are supported by a good 
sentimental-beat combo sound. 
There’s chart chances in this cut. 

(B) “I DON’T LOVE YOU ANY- 
MORE” (2:06) [Leevann AS- 
CAP — Vance, Pockriss] Gals have 
harder rock sound for the teen-mar- 
ket. Label headquarters in N.Y. 


PEPE LA STAZA (Everest 19407) 

(B+) “TILL THE END OF TIME” 
(2:32) [Joy ASCAP— Kaye, 
Mossman] Label’s new songster very 
pleasingly cuddles the famed pop 
adaptation of the Chopin melody. Per- 
former is backed by a fine cozy rock- 
a-string sound. Could come-up with 
strong deejay action Eye it. 

(B) “SHE’S MY DATE” (2:10) 
[Pilot ASCAP — Williams, 
Quellette] Nice soft-spoken rock-a- 
cha sentimental. 


SUGAR PIE DESANTO 
(Checker 971) 

(B+) “CAN’T LET YOU GO” 
(2:30) [Arc BMI— A&P Par- 
ham] Infectious medium-beat sound 
featuring the multi-tracked lark, who 
had a pop-R&B click some years ago 
with “I Want To Know.” This track 
could come-up with similar coin. 

(B) “IT WON’T BE LONG” (2:07) 
[Arc BMI — Fratto] Harder- 
hitting R&B-flavored arrangement 
here. 


MYRON LEE (Nor Va Jak 1326) 

(B+) “I NEED SOMEONE [Dun- 
dee BMI — Tharp] Catchy wist- 
ful in inviting rock-a-cha fashion by 
the vocalist and combo-femme chorus 
accompaniment. Side could catch-on 
with the kids, and ride the charts. 

(B) “BLUE, LAWDY, BLUE” 
[Dundee BMI — Duncan] 
Bluesy jumper for the big-beat crowd. 


JIMMY BOWEN (Capehart 5005) 

(B+) “TEEN AGE DREAM- 
WORLD” (1:50) [American 
BMI — Bowen, Fransen] Onetime teen 
chart performer might make a solid 
comeback with this quick-beat rock- 
a-string belt. It’s contagious stuff that 
could catch-on. 

(B) “IT’S AGAINST THE LAW” 
(1:55) [American BMI — 

Bowen, Fransen] Fella wants a law 
against breaking hearts in this hearty 
pounder with strings. 


AMANDA THIGPEN (Dot 16196) 

(B+) “AFTER MY LAUGHTER 
CAME TEARS” (2:24) 
[Cromwell & Shapiro — Bern- 
stein ASCAP — Tobias, Turk] Talented 
chirp bows on Dot with a fine warm- 
beat warble of the sentimental oldie. 
Nice lazy rock-a-string accompani- 
ment. Side will please the jocks; could 
make noise. 

(B) “MY BABY LOVES HIS GUI- 
TAR BETTER THAN ME” 
(2:23) [Roosevelt BMI — Co- 
vay, Berry] Good rock life to this nov- 
elty stand. 


WES FARRELL (FTP 405) 

(B+) “YOU GOT LOVE” (1:44) 
[Rell-Tem-Pel BMI — Farrell, 
Kusik] A teen view of love is de- 
scribed in pro rock-rhythm terms by 
the songster and combo-chorus back- 
ing. Big-beat merry-making that could 
happen. 

(B) “WILLIE AND THE HAND 
JIVE” (2:22) [El Dorado 
BMI — Otis] Good teen joy on the old 
sock-rock product. 


CATERINA VALENTE 
(London) 1968) 

(B+) “SUCO SUCO” (2:10) [Ray 
Maxwell BMI — Rojas] Per- 
former does her usual skilled rhythm 
warble, this time on the big Euro- 
pean success by Ping-Pong. Colorful 
Latinish setting is a big sound asset. 

(B) “PERSONALITA” (2:35) 
[Lloyd & Logan BMI — Logan, 
Price] Thrush reads the awhile back 
Lloyd Price hit, “Personality,” in a 
bouncy Italian-sung session. 


GEORGE SCOTT (Margo 001) 

(B-f) “THE MATADOR” (2:14) 
[Lowery BMI — Dowdy, Scott] 
Interesting color to this fast-beat 
stand, featuring guitarist Scott & 
trumpets, on a catchy Spanish-flav- 
ored tune. Original sound that could 
mean something for the Atlanta label. 

(B) “TWILIGHT” (2:20) [Lowery 
BMI — Dowdy, Scott] Trum- 
pets are muted in another off-beat 
belt from the combo. 


BILL ROBIN & THE BLUEJAYS 

(MGM 12994) 

(B+) “MY BLUE HEAVEN” (1:56) 
[Leo Feist ASCAP — Whiting, 
Donaldson] The standby gets an ef- 
fective teen-market going over from 
the organ-led, Bill Black Combo- 
sounding group, which is augmented 
here by a string section. Could make 
noise. 

(B) “CAMEL WALK” (2:03) 
[Walmay & Rise BMI — Ro- 
bley, Logan, Eldred] Organ & growl- 
ing sax are the top sounds in this 
good-sounding steady-beat driver (no 
strings in this corner). 


NITE-CAPS (Fan Jr. 6007) 

(C+) “POINCIANA” (3:05) [E. B. 

Marks BMI — Simon, Bernier] 
The Latin oldie goes the rock route in 
this funky combo-chorus stint. 

(C+) “COMIN’ IN ON A WING & 
A PRAYER (Flying Sinner)” 
(2:15) [Robbins ASCAP — Adamson, 
McHugh] The World War 2 favorite 
also becomes a vehicle for a middle- 
beat rock go for the combo. Label 
distribution is handled by Warner 
Bros. 


“SINGIN’ ” SAMMY WARD 
(Tamla 54030) 

(B) “WHO’S THE FOOL” (2:40) 
[Jobete BMI — Robinson] 
R&B market gets a pro low-down bal- 
lad expression from songster Ward. 
Guitar tops the funky backdrop. 

(B) “THAT CHILD IS REALLY 
WILD” (2:40) [Jobete BMI— 
Gordy, Robinson] Infectious upbeat 
blues doings here. 


CHARLIE BEE COMBO (Atco 6191) 

(B) “IN WAIKIKI” (2:17) [M. 

Witmark ASCAP — Mercer, 
Schwartz] A neglected Hawaiian-type 
charmer by Johnny Mercer & Arthur 
Schwartz — written for a pic tagged 
“Navy Blues” — is revived with the 
teeners in mind in this infectious 
combo showing. Organ and assorted 
percussion bits are featured. 

(B) “OLD ROCKIN’ SQUARE” 

(2:25) [Dundee-Progressive 
BMI — Petty] Musicians display their 
impressive teen-directed wares in this 
pounding novelty sound. 


JIMMY BANNER (20th Fox 241) 

(B+) “BIMBO” (2:46) [Fairway 
BMI — Morris] Old hit gets a 
strong new sound via the songster’s 
vocal against a potent backdrop sound 
from guitars and chorus. Solid rock- 
attack issue. 

(B) “YOUR CHEATIN’ HEART” 
(1:58) [Acuff-Rose BMI— Wil- 
liams] Country-inclined view of the 
great Hank Williams’ opus. 


RUTH CHRISTIE (Tide 0018) 

(B) “MINE TO LOVE (Have and 

Hold)” [Cepha BMI — Fulmer, 
DePores, Stratchborneo] Lark is sen- 
sitive on the almost hymn-like roman- 
tic. Much of the religious feel comes 
from the keyboard in the soft setting. 
Interesting ballad session. 

(B) “THIS MUST BE LOVE” 

(2:02) [Cepha BMI— DePores, 
Stratchborneo, Fulmer] Performer’s 
vehicle recalls the blues favorite, 
“Fever.” 


CHET “POISON” IVEY 
(ABC-Paramount 10199) 

(B) “LET’S DO THE PONY” 
(2:30) [Sylvia BMI — Ivey] 
Deep-voiced songster and musicians- 
chorus give the kids a pony session 
they will enjoy stepping to. Instru- 
ment-wise, a sax does a hopping good 
job. 






(B) “JUST A LITTLE BIT OF . ,, 
LOVE” (2:30) [Sylvia BMI— 
Ivey] Jumpin’ blueser from the war- 
bler and backing. 


THE SWEET HEARTS (D&H 500) 

(B) “MY ONLY YOU” (2:15) [Y 
Plus X BMI — Osborne] Lark 
team's lead offers an upbeat blues ro- * I < 
mantic against a busy sound from 
the other chirps, in a chanting role, , 
and combo. Interesting rockin’ stuff. 


(B) “MY BABY” (2:20) [Y Plus I- 
X BMI — Osborne] This lovey- 
dovey statement includes a trombone, 
a rare instrument in such bluesy ses- 
sions. 


FRANKIE LAINE (Columbia 41974) 

(B) “GUNSLINGER” (1:55) [Ero- 

sa ASCAP — Washington, Ti- } 
omkin] As he does on the sound- 
track of the TV’er, the vet songster 
offers his disk forte, the dramatic 
western-type opus. Galloping ork- 
chorus backing includes French Horn 
statements. 

v jl 

(B) “WANTED MAN” (2:37) 

[E. H. Morris ASCAP— Hil- 
liard, Pockriss] A good rock-type 
sound backs Laine’s vocal on another 
western storyline. 


GEORGE GREELEY 

(Warner Bros. 5210) 

(B+) “ANNIVERSARY SONG” 
(2:14) [Shapiro-Bernstein AS- 
CAP — Ivanovici, Jolson, Chaplin] The 
popular WB pianist performs the sen- 
timental oldie against modern, good- 
sounding Latinish swinging from the 
ork (plus chanting male chorus). 
Jocks can solidly take to a sound like 
this. 

(B) “UNCHAINED MELODY” 
(2:45) [Frank ASCAP — Za- 
ret, North] An attractive keyboard 
and lush ork-chorus reading of the 
lovely standard. 


EDDIE HEYWOOD (Mercury 71781) 

(B) “MOUNTAINS ON THE 
MOON” (2:14) [Meridian 
BMI — Heywood] Ivory artist per- 
forms a mystic-type against some in- 
teresting percussion-brass touches 
from the ork. Adds-up to an inter- 
esting session that can come-up with 
big spins. 

(B) “VELVET ROCK” (2:02) 
[Meridian BMI — Heywood] 
This easy rock-styled affair has 
touches of Heywood’s and Hugo Win- 
terhalter’s years-back smash, “Cana- 
dian Sunset.” 


LONNIE JOHNSON 

(Prestige Bluesville 812) 

(B) “MEMORIES OF YOU” 
(2:10) [Blake, Razaf] A soul- 
ful blues-like display of the oldie. The 
vet entertainer works the tune 
smoothly into his earthy style. 

(B) “I’LL GET ALONG SOME- 
HOW” (2:13) [Field, Marks] 
Ditto this end. Two fine programming 
sides. Both are culled from the “Blues 
And Ballads” LP.

Album Reviews 


POPULAR PICKS OF THE WEEK 


“PROVOCATIVE PERCUSSION” Volume 3 — 
Enoch Light and the Light Brigade — Command 
RS 821 SD 

Each new Command album reinforces the truth 
that the company is the leader in its field, no one 
having yet come close to what Command has been 
able to do in stereo separation and clarity of 
sound. This third volume of “Provocative” con- 
tains such selections as “The Continental,” “El 
Relicario,” “Old Devil Moon” and “April In Por- 
tugal.” Each presents a brilliant engineering feat 
as well as exciting musical entertainment. 


“ON THE REBOUND” — Floyd Cramer— RCA 
Victor LSP 2359 

With two successive hits in a row, Cramer is 
ready to launch an attack on the LP charts. The 
LP, titled after his current hit, features the Nash- 
ville pianist in varying instrumental moods, from 
the wistfulness of “Danny Boy” to the riotous 
honky-tonks with “Corrina, Corrina.” Others in 
the date include “Wonderland By Night,” “San 
Antonia Rose” and “Let It Be Me.” Could dent the 
charts solidly. 


“OUR FAVORITE FOLK SONGS”— The Browns 
—RCA Victor LSP-2333 

An intriguing folk song concert is presented by 
the group as they weld their voices in close har- 
mony for performances of such cherished items as 
“Down In the Valley,” “Columbus Stockade 
Blues,” “John B. Sails,” “Shenandoah” and “Poor 
Wildwood Flower.” The group’s work is consist- 
ently inoffensive and in impeccable good taste. 


“LIKE CHARLIE” — Charlie Shavers and his 
Orchestra — Everest LPBR 5-27 

Charlie Shavers again in a Jonah Jones-like, 
polite jazz mood. Only, the Shavers artistic ability 
and inventiveness doesn’t allow him to get too 
polite, thankfully! Opening with a jet-speed treat- 
ment of “The Best Things In Life Are Free” us- 
ing both muted and open horns, Charlie sets the 
pace for succeeding reading of “In the Still of The 
Night,” “Taking A Chance On Love,” “Don’t Be 
Late” and “Soon.” There’s excitement enough to 
satisfy many jazz fans, and enough melodious- 
ness for pop buyers. 


“ELLA’S GOLDEN FAVORITES” — Ella Fitz- 
gerald — Decca DL 4129 

Early Ella here in a dozen performances that 
includes such delectable items as “A-Tasket A- 
Tasket,” “Stone Cold Dead In The Market,” 
“Goody Goody,” “A Sunday Kind of Love,” “Old 
Devil Moon” and “I Got It Bad And That Ain’t 
Good.” Lots of interest in these old sides. 


“BOBBY VINTON PLAYS FOR HIS LI’L 
DARLIN’S”— Epic LN 3780 
A big band for teenagers is the Vinton sound. 
Here he leads his ork aggressively through a line- 
up of rock ’n roll items which includes “Lil 
Darlin’,” “Venus,” “Peggy Sue,” “Diana” and 
“Corrina, Corrina.” This is a rocking, stomping 
outfit with a solid beat and a honking sax section 
that will delight the youngsters.

“PERCUSSION SPECTACULAR” — Arthur Ly- 
man — Life L-1004 

Life, hifi’s “sound” series, presents the Lyman 
group in a program that is very similar to what 
Lyman had been doing on records, but now with 
an additional percussive boost. Each member of 
the quartet, including vibes-marimba specialist 
Lyman, is versatile on several instruments, hence 
the colorfully ever-changing sound achieved. Se- 
lections include “Andalusia,” “Havah Nagilah,” 
“Sweet And Lovely,” “Yellow Bird” and a 4 
minute version of Ravel’s “Bolero.”

“TONY MARTIN— HIS GREATEST HITS” — 
Dot DLP 3360 

The hit song milestones of his career are re- 
viewed by Tony Martin in new recordings for the 
label. Supported by full, rich string arrangements 
by George Greeley, Martin offers “For Everj * 
Man There’s A Woman,” “Kiss of Fire,” “I Get 
Ideas,” “There’s No Tomorrow” and “To Each 
His Own.” His fans will appreciate the new treat- 
ments. 


“CHARANGAS!” — The Almendra Charanga 
Band — Panart LP 2067 

With the onset of the Pachanga dance craze 
( spreading westward from N.Y.), the demand 
for authentic Charanga music is becoming great. 
Panart (which has been producing this product 
for years) neatly fills some of that demand here 
with a delightful session by such an authentic 
Charanga band. Its instrument complement of 
violins, flutes and rhythm and fascinating Spanish 
language vocal group turns out a product that ‘ 
will be greatly appreciated by followers of the 
dance. 


“THE TRAPP FAMILY”— Original Film Sound- 
track — 20th Fox 3044 

“The Sound of Music” awakened new interest 
in the famous family of singers and now 20th 
Century Fox is releasing the film of the family’s 
life story. This track LP from the film presents 
the Trapp’s performing numbers from their rep- 
ertoires of Austrian and American folk songs. 
An enchanting program that many will enjoy. 


“PIANO FORTE" — Peter Nero— RCA Victor 
LSP-2334 

Newcomer to the label, Nero is getting the star 
buildup. He plays the piano in a style that com- 
bines elements of the cocktail lounge and the con- 
cert hall. At times he displays a swing facility. 
In total, he is versatile. Here, amid orchestral 
setting created by Marty Gold that leans toward 
the dramatic classical, Nero embraces a program 
of mostly standards, among them “I Can’t Get 
Started,” “Over the Rainbow,” “Surrey With The 
Fringe On Top” and “Cherokee.” 


Ufl 


“DO-RE-MI” — June Christy/Bob Cooper — Capitol 
ST 1586 

The Styne-Comden-Green score is given a 
breezy, jazz-oriented going over in alternate se- 
lections by Miss Christy and the Bob Cooper band. 
Each does five numbers: June sings “Cry Like the 
Wind,” “All You Need Is A Quarter” and “Make 
Someone Happy”; Cooper swings “Adventure,” 
“All of My Life” and “It’s Legitimate.” The 
cheerful tunes are well-suited to this type of 
treatment (as Styne scores before it) and this 
pair respect the melodies while investing their 
performances with inventive freshness. 


“SPECTACULAR BRASS GOES CHA-CHA- 
CHA” — Roger King Mozian and His Orchestra — 
MGM E3920 

Trumpeter, Mozian, possessor of a brilliant, 
clear tone heard to advantage on his “Spec. 
Brass” LP, reunites that group for a turn at the 
cha cha cha. Again, the brass sound is kept 
bright, vigorous and melodious but now with 
added rhythmic invention for a pulsating, stereo- 
angled percussion ensemble. Selections include 
“My Man,” “Sentimental Journey,” “Swanee” and 
“Begin the Beguine” all transposed to cha cha 
tempo. Excellent disk for dancing and/or listen- 
ing. 


“1961 THEMES”— London LL 3238 f 

From London’s catalog comes a dozen film and 
show themes performed by its various artists. The 
Cambridge Strings offer “Tunes of Glory” and 1 
“Love Theme From Suzie Wong”; Frank Chacks- I 
field does “Madeleine”; Ted Heath and his Music j 
contribute “Midnight Lace” and “Ruby-Duby-Do” ( 
and others by the Ronnie Aldrich, Eric Rogers ( 
and Edmundo Ros orchestras. Success of filmusic 
should mean sales here.

Reviews 



“THE INTERNATIONAL POP ORCHESTRA”— 
Cameo SC-2001 

A 110 member ork bows here in a combined 
program of pops and popularized classics. The 
approach, even toward the pop tunes, is in care- 
fully measured, pseudo-classical arrangements. 
Selections include “Ritual Fire Dance,” “Ha- 
banera,” “Rhapsody In Blue,” “Lisbon Antigua” 
and “If You Love Me.” Interesting orchestral 
package. 


“SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY”— Mr. Acker Bilk 
with the Leon Young String Chorale — Atco 33- 
129 

Clarinetist Acker Bilk, purveyor of New Or- 
leans Jazz in England, softens and sweetens his 
tones for a romantic journey here through such 
evergreens as “Greensleeves,” “I Can’t Get 
Started,” “Cielito Lindo,” “Deep Purple” and 
“Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen.” Strings 
by Leon Young suppoi’t in lush, listenable fashion. 
Immensely enjoyable mood offering. 



“GENE AUTRY’S GREATEST HITS”— Colum- 
bia CL 1575 

The most famous of all singing cowboys, 
Autry’s career spans a couple of decades of sing- 
ing and shooting. Here, Columbia has packaged 
the star’s big records of the past years, including 
“Back In The Saddle Again,” “Home On The 
Range,” “Tumbling Tumbleweeds,” “That Silver 
Haired Daddy of Mine” and “Mexicali Rose.” Has 
sentimental value. 



"LATIN PERCUSSION” — Joseph Mattera and 
his Orchestra — Strand STE 1017 

An enjoyable and interesting journey through a 
dozen Latin evergreens. Mattera has obtained a 
colorful, melodically outstanding sound with per- 
cussive effects on such memorables as “Amapola,” 
“Mama Inez,” “The Breeze And I,” “Brazil” and 
“Miami Beach Rhumba.” Listenable and dance- 
able. 


“NOTHING BUT PERCUSSION” Vol. 2— Com- 
posed and Conducted By Bobby Christian — West- 
minster WP-6131 

An all-original venture from the pen of Bobby 
Christian depicts. Side one is an array of oriental 
inspired music under the title, “Mt. Fujiyama 
Suite.” Basic instrumentation for the suite is 
supplied by Christian himself, proficient on mallet 
instruments (vibes, marimba, xylophone). Side 
two contains original songs (plus Weil’s “Speak 
Low”) grouped under the heading “Percussion in 
Velvet” and played with a vibrato soft touch. 
Not too much in percussion here, but good music 
for mood listening. 



JAZZ PICKS OF THE WEEK 


“LIGHTNIN’ IN NEW’ YORK”— Lightnin’ Hop- 
kins — Candid 8010 

Inside the record jacket— one of the most strik- 
ing covers in a long while — is some of the fresh- 
est, most exciting blues ever cut in a studio. 
Hopkins, the last of the really great country 
blues singers, is given more room to stretch out 
than he’s ever had, with some of the tracks here 
running to six and seven minutes. It allows a 
close scrutiny of an almost extinct art. Singing 
eight originals and accompanying himself on 
guitar and piano, Lightnin’ displays himself to 
truly great proportions. Candid does it again by 
scooping the field with a tremendous LP. 

“EXODUS TO JAZZ” — Eddie Harris — VeeJay 
LP-2016 

New tenor saxist on the scene, it is significant 
that Harris debuts on an LP titled “Exodus.” This 
flick theme provides the opener, an intriguing 
handling of the melody in a lightly swinging but 
soulful statement. Guitar, bass, piano and drums 
support (and solo) Harris in readings of originals 
“Alicia,” “A.T.C.” and “Velocity.” Harris’ 
“Exodus” single, now clicking in r&b marts, could 
pave the way to a hit album. 



BIXiTi 

BEIDERBECKE 

LEGEND 




“MORE MUSIC FROM THE SOIL”— Ramsey 
Lewis Trio — Argo LP 680 

The trio’s “earthy” style takes hold here in a 
program of smartly selected pops and originals. 
Lewis’ chord style playing is perfectly comple- 
mented by Red Holt’s persuasive drumming and 
Eldee Young’s reliable bass. In close coordination 
they offer “Around The World In 80 Days,” 
“Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,” “Blues For The 
Night Owl” and six others. Group has substantial 
pop following too. 

“MORRIS GRANTZ PRESENTS JUNK”— Argo 
LP 4006 

In a take-off of Norman Grantz’s JATP con- 
certs, Argo has concocted an hilarious musical 
satire of the styles of jazz’s biggest names. There 
are tracks by Morris Brewbeck with Sol Desman 
(with an explanation by Brewbeck), Miles Morris 
with Can-E-Ball Naturally, Morris Garner, The- 
loneliest Plunk, Ornette Morris with Mon Cherie, 
Morris Ferguson and others. The satires are 
amazingly faithful to the real artists’ styles and 
the LP is complete right down to the liner notes 
signed by Ira Morris, America’s foremost liner- 
note writer. Obviously, someone at Argo has a 
fixation on the name Morris. Lots of fun here for 
jazz fans. 

“THE BIX BEIDERBECKE LEGEND”— RCA 
Victor LPM-2323 

The discovery of a previously unlisted, unre- 
leased master of a 1924 session by the Jean Gold- 
kette orch featuring a Bix Beiderbecke solo, 
prompted Victor to build an LP around it with 
several re-releases of Bix’s work. The tune is “I 
Didn’t Know” and the reason for its disappear- 
ance was that Bix faltered in the solo. Ironically, 
this now makes it of even greater value to the 
collectors. Other sides from the vault include 
“Clementine” and “Sunday” with Goldkette, two 
takes each of “Changes” and “Lonely Melody” 
with Whiteman. 

“TOSHIKO-MARIANO QUARTET” — Candid 
8012 

Charlie Mariano, alto, has been growing 
steadily since his featured days with Kenton. The 
same can be said for Toshiko, piano, who’s made 
great strides since coming to the U.S. in 1956. 
The husband and wife team, despite their different 
musical identities, have channeled their ideas in a 
similar direction and now form an upcoming “new 
star” group. Cene Cherico (bass) and Eddie 
Marshall (drums) complete the group. There is 
much more adventure in their playing here than 
noticed before. Especially in Mariano’s solo state- 
ments. Originals performed include “When You 
Meet Her,” “Toshiko’s Elegy” and “Little T.” 

“SLIDE HAMPTON AND HIS HORN OF 
PLENTY”— Strand SL 1006 

Good new trombonists are hard to come by. 
One exception is Slide Hampton, one-time with 
Maynard Ferguson and now making a name for 
himself on his own. Here, with a band of fine 
young musicians — George Coleman, Booker Little, 
Freddie Hubbard, George Tucker — Hampton pro- 
duces a session noted for its warmth, color and 
diversity of ideals. There is a lot of freedom in the 
arrangements, but never confusion, as each in- 
dividual is disciplined in his art. Tunes include 
“Newport,” “Go East, Young Man,” and “Woody’n 
You.” 

“THE MONTGOMERY BROTHERS”— Fantasy 
3308 

Monk (electric bass), Buddy (vibes, piano) and 
Wes Montgomery achieve amazing cohesiveness 
on their first record date as a group. Wes, one of 
jazz’s new stars, shines above the rest with his 
brilliant technique and engrossing solos, but all 
three play with exceptional feelings. An identified 
drummer lays down the rhythm base. Selections 
include “June In January,” “Lover Man” and 
several originals. 


“BOOGIE WOODIE REVISITED”— RCA Victor 
LPM-2321 

The bubbling effervescence of boogie woogie is 
revisited through the Victor archives. The label 
has collected here a wide sampling of the style, 
from the authenticity of creators Albert Ammons, 
Jimmy Yancey, Pete Johnson, Meade Lux Lewis 
to interpreters of the style such as Mary Lou 
Williams, Big Maceo to the popular band arrange- 
ments in the books of Glenn Miller, Earl Hines, 
Andy Kirk and Tommy Dorsey. Twelve tracks in 
all provide this fascinating look-back at jazz in 
its formative years. 


The Cash Box — April 8, 1961 


23 







Stan Getz’s opening performance at the Village Vanguard was disappointing. 
Though many discarded the proceedings as “just the first set,” Getz’ on- 
stand behavior indicated he’s still a problem child. His disinterested attitude 
and continual absence from the stand to wander aimlessly around the club 
during the quartet’s performance was a disservice and an insult to those who 
came to cheer him. Now that that’s taken care of, a visit to the club later in 
the week proved that he had settled himself somewhat more comfortably for 
the week’s run and was playing much more efficiently, expressively and ma- 
turely than in past years. Denmark has been good to his playing, mellowing it 
quite a bit. There’s very little stridency left in his statements. 

The rest of the quartet was comprised of Roy Haynes (drums), Jimmy Gar- 
rison (bass) and Steve Kuhn (piano), who had his hands full filling in for the 
missing Getz. The other half of the bill presented pianist Junior Mance with 
Buddy Catlett on bass and Paul Gusman displaying a particularly effervescent 
style on drums. 

With Getz’s week-long date, the Vanguard’s Max Gordon announced a star- 
studded Spring lineup of talent set for the club. Following Getz into the place 
was the Modern Jazz Quartet and the Don Ellis Trio. Ellis, trumpet graduate 
of the Ferguson, Thornhill and Barnet organizations, makes his nitery bow 
with the date. April 4-16 brings Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers into the 
club alternating with the International Jazz Quartet, representing members 
from Hungary, Belgium, the Netherlands and the U.S. April 25th finds genial 
vet Jack Teagarden disturbing the modernists who usually inhabit the Van- 
guard with his likeable Dixie melodies. But Junior Mance will soothe the dis- 
comforted as he returns once more, to alternate with Teagarden. On May 9th 
Oscar Brown, Jr., returns for an unusually long four-weeks booking. This lad 
is really on the move upward — even plans a Broadway musical, “Kicks & Co.” 
for fall opening. 


Franklin Geltman boasting that this Summer’s Randall’s Island Jazz Festival 
has now become the largest of its kind in the world. At the same time, producer 
Geltman announced the dates for the fest: August 25-26-27. A complete list of 
the performers is forthcoming from the Geltman office. 

The Cannonball Adderley Quintet embarks April 6th for three weeks in 
Europe. The tour commences in Amsterdam and is followed by dates in Ham- 
burg, Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo, Gothenburg, Cologne, Dusseldorf, 
Berlin, Munich, Vienna and Frankfurt. Cannonball’s personal manager, Chuck 
Taylor, will be accompanying them on the tour. 

Les McCann recently completed his first vocal recording session for Pacific 
Jazz Records. He was backed on the date by a big band playing charts by Ger- 
ald Wilson. It was also learned from the label that Richard “Groove” Holmes, a 
discovery of McCann’s, has been pacted by them. McCann “discovered” Holmes 
while on a recent eastern tour and persuaded him to come west. McCann will 
produce Holmes’ first album. 


Dan Terry and his “Big Band On Campus,” which has been playing jazz con- 
certs and proms on the east coast college circuit, is being paged to headline the 
Virginia Beach Jazz Festival. Tom Gwaltney, chairman of the fest, will brings 
the group of youngsters to a festival which last year_ featured Maynard Fer- 
guson’s band and the year before starred Count Basie. Pretty big shoes for 
Terry to fill. 

JAZZ JOTTINGS. . . . The Herbie Mann Afro-Jazz Revue, at the Village 
Gate for a one-weeker March 3rd, was repacted by the club for an unprece- 
dented seven-week engagement which began March 21. . . Braving the riots 
at Ft. Lauderdale (which made Newport seem like a soft summer breeze) are 
Chris Connor, the Hi-Los and Gerry Mulligan, all headlining the Ft. Lauderdale 
Jazz Festival (March 24-29). Following the fest, Chris continued on her south- 1 
ern concert tour which began at Wake Forrest March 18. . . . Maynard Fer- 
guson launched the 1961 Atlantic City season as headliner at the Steel Pier 
Easter Sunday. ... To kick off their seventh anniversary celebration, Carl 
Henry and Jim Mendes, jazz jockeys at WPFM-Providence are inviting musi- 
cians to participate in what they call “The most exciting jazz concert in New 
England since Newport.” The celebration will take place on their respective 
shows. Interested artists are urged to contact them at the station. . . . Teddy 
Edwards has been inked by Contemporary Records. His first session for the. 
label has already been issued under the title “Teddy’s Ready.”

Capitol Releases First 
Album In Ed. Series 

HOLLYWOOD— Capitol this week (3) 
is releasing the first in a series of 
specially prepared educational record- 
ings designed for use in school and 
college music courses. 

The album, “Symphonic Movements 
From The Masters,” was prepared by 
the Educational Department of Capi- 
tol Records Distributing Corp., with 
the cooperation of William C. Hart- 
shorn, nationally-known music educa- 
tor and Supervisor of Music Education 
for the Los Angeles City School Sys- 
tem. 

Included in the LP are eight com- 
plete movements from eight sym- 
phonies. The works were culled from 
the Capitol and Angel catalogs by 
Hartshorn. 

The recording is packaged in a de- 
luxe double jacket containing an in- 
troduction by Hartshorn, plus his sug- 
gestions for grouping of the move- 
ments for optimum instructional 
value. Also included are program notes 
on the eight works and their com- 
posers. 

In addition, the album contains a 
large, removable, photographic wall- 
chart, illustrating the seating ar- 
rangement of a symphony orchestra. 

The works selected by Hartshorn 
for inclusion in the LP are: 

Haydn Symphony No. 94 (Surprise) 
— 2nd Movement, Pittsburgh Sym- 
phony Orchestra, William Steinberg 
cond.; Mozart Symphony No. 35 
(Haffner) — 1st Movement, Philhar-

Talmadge Back From Europe; Reports 
On Label Acceptance, Deals 


Art Talmadge, vice-president and 
general manager of United Artists 
Records, returned last week from a 
two-week trip through Europe in 
which he was accompanied by Sidney 
Shemel, director of foreign operations 
for the firm, reporting “fantastic” 
acceptance to the label. Talmadge an- 
nounced that four major foreign affil- 
iate deals had been consummated dur- 
ing his trip, with guarantees in each 
case running considerably above ex- 
pectations, and in each case the new 
affiliate has guaranteed the use of the 
UA logo on all releases in its respec- 
tive country. 

New affiliate in England will be 
EMI, Talmadge stated, with the con- 
tract being negotiated directly with 
Leonard Wood. In this instance, Tal- 
madge said, the use of the logo marks 
the first time in about five years that 
EMI has agreed to this type of firm 
identification. 

Deals were also completed with 
Barclay Records, France; CGD, Milan, 
Italy, and Hed Arzi, Israel, Talmadge 
said. In each case, and in each coun- 
try, the UA logo will prevail, and, in 
each instance guarantee requirements 


were met in full. 

“The remarkable success of United 
Artists Records in the singles and 
album fields, the acceleration of the 
complete line, and the potency of the 
United Artists parent company in 
Europe has combined to focus tre- 
mendous attention on our company 
throughout Europe,” Talmadge stated. 
“We were extremely gratified at the 
reception we received in every coun- 
try from all facets of the record- 
ing industry, and by the competitive 
bidding for our line in each of the 
countries.” 

Talmadge also announced that the 
four new foreign affiliates will take 
over as of April 15, 1961, and that 
each of the contracts was concluded 
on a long-term basis. 

Shemel remained in Europe where, 
during the next two weeks, he will 
complete similar contractural ar- 
rangements covering Switzerland, the 
Scandinavian countries, Holland, Aus- 
tralia and New Zealand. 

“In each of the current negotia- 
tions,” Talmadge said, “we will con- 
tinue to insist upon our own logo 
identification.”

his four-year partnership with Bob 
Marcucci in MDB Enterprises, Inc.,

“When I joined the partnership in

Decca Sets Week-Long 
Push Of Burnett LP 

NEW YORK — In keeping with its 
“Promotion Around The Clock” pro- 
gram of concentrated effort behind 
specific product, Decca will exert a 
“large-scale” sales drive this week on 
the album “Carol Burnett Remembers 
How They Stopped The Show.” 

The promotion has been spurred by 
the enthusiastic reception given Miss 
Burnett’s initial recording effort under 
the Decca banner, the label reported. 
The album has been highlighted via 
consistent network plugs on the Garry 
Moore show which features Miss Bur- 
nett as a regular cast member. She 
has performed several of the numbers 
and shown the album on several occa- 
sions on the popular night-time va- 
riety show. 

Display material and other sales 
aids are being made available to 
support the week - long sales drive. 
An incentive program is available to 
dealers who may obtain specific sales 
information from local Decca repre- 
sentatives. 

In addition to her weekly chores on 
the Garry Moore Show, Miss Burnett 
recently won prominence and critical 
acclaim starring in her Broadway 
stage debut in the musical “Once 
Upon A Mattress.” 

Carlton Names Cambridge 
New N. Y. Distrib 

NEW YORK — Carlton Records an-

Chancellor on solid ground and to help 
launch Fabian and Avalon on their 
careers. I now feel that these objec- 
tives have been achieved.” 

DeAngelis said he is anxious to 
return to his “first love,” classical 
music. An accomplished musician him- 
self, DeAngelis in the past few years 
has completed a symphonic poem, and 
is anxious to get started on a ballet 
composition. 

DeAngelis, who has been vice-pres- 
ident and A & R chief for Chancellor, 
said he also plans to study in Italy 
and France and also will engage in 
compositions of musical scores for 
musical comedies, motion pictures, 
and television. He added, however, 
that he will continue on occasion to 
write songs and do musical arrange- 
ments for Fabian and Avalon re- 
cordings. 

Marcucci said DeAngelis’ decision 
is accepted “with regret” and that his 
A & R duties will be taken over, effec- 
tive immediately, by Russ Faith, who 
has been DeAngelis’ assistant for the 
past year.

Reprise Bows First 5 
Albums; Sinatra Set 

LOS ANGELES— Reprise Records en- 
ters the LP field this week (3) with 
the release of the Frank Sinatra la- 
bel’s first five albums, it was an- 
nounced last week by Moe Austin, 
executive vice-president for the label. 

The album package includes Si- 
natra’s “Ring A Ding Ding,” Sammy 
Davis, Jr.’s, “The Wham Of Sam,” 
Mavis Rivers, “Mavis,” Joe E. Lewis’ 
“It Is Now Post Time,” and Ben 
Webster’s “Warm Moods.” 

A big promotion drive for this ini- 
tial release into the album market 
has been planned by Reprise. In ad- 
dition to special salesbooks for Re- 
prise salesmen, the company has pre- 
pared special mailers and stuffers, 
special ad mats for distributors, win- 
dow streamers and banners, etc. In 
addition, instructions and layouts are 
being sent to distributors for in-door 
and window displays as well as a spe- 
cial 4-color die-cut, three foot window 
display printed in day-glo ink with 
tip-ons for album covers. An entire 
ad campaign has also been planned 
and space has been reserved in most 
key national magazines as well as 
trade publications. 

Austin, who recently announced the 
signing of comedian Mort Sahl to an 
exclusive recording contract also 
stated that Sahl’s first album for the 
company, “The New Frontier,’ recent- 
ly recorded live at the Crescendo 
night club in Hollywood, would be 
released in mid-April. 

The company, just last week, re- 
leased their third single, “Back In 
Your Own Backyard,” b/w “I’m A 


NEW YORK— Morty Craft, Warwick 
Records’ topper, last week introduced, 
on a national scale, his new line of 
percussion albums sporting the “Sight 
And Sound” percussion logo. 

The new line, recoi’ded primarily for 
stereo, but also available in monaural 
as well, will list for $4.95 and $5.95. 

The initial release includes seven 
albums: “Where There’s Burns 

There’s Fire” featuring Ralph Burns 
and a sixty piece band; “The World 

Fool To Want You” taken from the 
Sammy Davis, Jr., album “The Wham 
of Sam.” Singles previously released 
were Frank Sinatra’s “The Second 
Time Around,” b/w “Tina,” and the 
Link-Eddy Combo recording of “Big 
Mr. Cee,” b/w “The Man With The 
Golden Arm.” 

Harmonica virtuoso Leo Diamond, 
who recently was signed exclusively 
to the label, recorded his first album 
for the company last week and Austin 
is planning to release it in May. 

“When first entering this field, the 
right approach to creating an impact 
upon the album buying public is the 
aforementioned packaging idea,” 
Austin stated. “Each of the five al- 
bums we are releasing will help to 
promote the other one through our 
ovei'all promotional and advertising 
campaign. Furthermore by releasing 
these five albums as a package, we 
will be providing the recording in- 
dustry and the public with a repre- 
sentative sampling of Reprise product, 
its quality and its diversity.” 


Of Percussion” starring Morty Craft 
and his Singing Strings; “The Soul 
Of Jazz Percussion” featuring Curtis 
Fuller, Booker Little, Donald Byrd, 
“Philly” Joe Jones, Paul Chambers, 
Pepper Adams, Bill Evans, Mai Wal- 
dron and a host of others; “Concertos 
in Percussion” by the Warwick Sym- 
phony Orchestra; “Percussion” by , 
Craft and the Singing Strings; “Glenn 
Miller meets the Dorsey Brothers in < ' 
Percussion;” and “Percussion in Hol- 
lywood, Broadway and Television” by 
Craft and the Singing Strings. 

The first seven albums were re- 
corded during the past eight months. 
According to Craft, close to $250,000 
was spent on these recordings, “and _ 
we feel we have attained percussion 
perfection in this series.” The albums 
were recorded at the Bell Sound Stu- 
dios in New York employing the 
massive new automatic 15 microphone 
channel instrument switcher which 
Bell Sound calls “The Monster.” 

“ ‘The Monster’ ” says Craft, “enables 
the listener to see what he is hearing. 
And we have geared our entire series 
to this ‘Sight and Sound’ theme.” 

On the back cover of each album 
is a complete analysis of each selec- 
tion in the LP thru which the listen- 
er can follow the performance on the A; 
record while reading which instru- 
ments are coming from which speak- ' 
ers. For example: In the “Theme 
From the ‘Untouchables’ ” band in the 
“Hollywood Broadway, Television” 
LP, the following is the break down 
with which the listener can “see what 
he is hearing.” — Intro: Tympani right 
and left, Bamboos right, bongos left, i 
whistle right, etc. 1st Chorus: Strings 
left, brass right. Everything center, f 
strings left and right etc. Each selec- 
tion on every LP is given similar 
coverage. 

The jazz product was produced by 
Teddy Charles, Warwick Jazz A & R , - 
topper. The popular albums were pro- 
duced by Morty Craft. 

The series was pre-tested in Los 
Angeles two weeks ago, and, accord- ? 
ing to Craft, “in the first ten days 
the albums took the coast by storm.” 

In less than ten days, Music City, one 
of Los Angeles’ leading retailers, list 
six of the seven LP’s on its top 40 
best-seller list. The Craft “Percus- 
sion album was #3; the Warwick 
Orch. album was # 5; the Miller- 
Dorsey album was #9; the Fuller 
album was #11; the Craft “World of 
Percussion” was #14; the Craft “Hol- 
lywood” album was #16. 

Also in that ten day period, Pep 
Distributing, Warwick’s Los Angeles 
distrib, re-ordered the series four 
times, Craft said.

ALL THE LEADING TRADE

The Cash Box — April 8, 1961 






Capitol Extends March LP Discount, 
Cancels April LP Release 


LEGIT SALES LEADE 


HOLLYWOOD — As a result of “over- 
whelming” dealer and consumer ac- 
ceptance of its March 1/3-in-merchan- 
dise discount plan, Capitol Records 
Distributing Corp. is extending the 
program through the month of April 
and cancelling the planned April re- 
leases of all Capitol and Angel al- 
bums, with two exceptions, a special 
educational LP and a comedy album. 
Other albums scheduled for April re- 
lease on both labels will be incorpo- 
rated into subsequent releases. 

Announcement of the moves was 
made last week by J. K. Maitland, 
president of CRDC, who termed the 
program “the most successful dealer- 
incentive and traffic-building plan we 
have ever offered.” 

Maitland said that dealers who 
qualified for the March program 
would continue to receive the 1/3 mer- 
chandise bonus on all purchases. To 
be eligible for the Capitol plan, re- 
tailers need buy only 100 Capitol-label 
LP’s. After qualifying, they receive 
one album free for every three pur- 
chased. Qualifying order for the 
Angel program is 50 LP’s, with the 
same benefits applying afterward. 
Bonus albums must be chosen from 
the titles purchased. 

CRDC’s March-April program, 
which expires at the close of business 
Friday, April 28, applies to all LP 
and EP albums in the Capitol and 
l\ngel catalogs. Not covered under the 
programs are four-track stereo tapes, 


Dick Linke Moves 
Offices To Hollywood 

HOLLYWOOD — Dick Linke, president 
pf Richard 0. Linke Associates, last 
week announced the moving of the 
firm’s offices from New York to Hol- 
lywood. The move was necessitated 
by Linke’s expanding interests on the 
west coast, mainly the handling of 
Andy Griffith and his position as as- 
sociate producer of “The Andy Grif- 
fith TV Show.” On April 1, Linke 
gave up his offices at the Park Shera- 
ton Hotel in New York, and will head- 
quarter at Desilu Studios — 846 North 
Cahuenga Boulevard, Hollywood 38, 
California. 

; A New York office for Linke’s firm 
will be located at 37 West 57th Street, 
kew York City — Suite 1204. 

Because of this move, Linke had to 
do some reshuffling of his talent and 
will give singer Tommy Leonetti his 
release as of May 1st. Linke terms 
this “an unfortunate turn of events” 
since the pair have been together over 
five years and the association has 
been a “most happy one.” However, 
the problem of 3,000 miles plus other 
interests made the split a necessary 
one, Linke said. 

Linke will still continue to manage 
Margaret Ann With The Ernie Mari- 
ani Trio and 11-year old singer, Robin 
Clark, from Nashville. He has made 
the necessary arrangements for east- 
ern reps for both artists. In addition, 
he will continue to handle actor Bob 
McQuain from Hollywood. 

“The Andy Griffith Show” finishes 
filming for this year, March 29, and 
then Griffith and Linke leave for New 
York, where Griffith will be the guest- 
star on “I’ve Got A Secret” on April 
12. On April 17, Griffith is scheduled 
to do a feature picture for Columbia 
entitled, “The Diamond Bikini.” 

Mel Shayne’ Linke’s former assist- 
ant in New York, will form his own 
personal management company after 
April 1. 


Compact 33 Doubles, and the new edu- 
cational album, Symphonic Move- 
ments From The Masters, which will 
be the only Capitol album released on 
April 3 (see separate story). 

The comedy album, “2000 Years 
With Carl Reiner & Mel Brooks, which 
was recently purchased by Capitol 
Records from World Pacific Records 
and which will be reissued by the 
label on April 10, is included in 
CRDC’s program. 


Mercury's Smash Label 
Acquires Jin Master 

CHICAGO — Mercury Records new 
subsid, Smash Records, issued its third 
release last week, via a distribution- 
production deal on a reportedly hot 
New Orleans and Houston deck by 
Joe Barry on the Jin label of “I’m 
A Fool To Care.” 

Up to now, production of the Joe 
Barry single was being handled for 
Jin at Houston Plastics, however. 
Mercury is now putting it into the 
plants at Richmond, Indiana and Los 
Angeles, which service Mercury. The 
Richmond plant also has facilities for 
printing, color separation work and 
packaging in addition to its pressing 
facilities. 

The negotiations for the Jin- Smash 
deal were handled by Shelby Single- 
ton and Kenny Myers of Mercury and 
the producers of the Jin single, Floyd 
Soileau and Huey Maux. 

Smash’s first release was an orig- 
inal cutting expressly for the label by 
the Paramours called “That’s The 
Way We Love”; the second release 
was a master purchase of “Marie” by 
the Mus-Twangs, which was a break- 
out hit in the Chicago territory on 
the Nero label.

dent of Cadence Records, announced

Tentative Plans For 
Cooke Sacred LP 

HOLLYWOOD — Negotiations are un- 
der way to team RCA Victor record- 
ing star Sam Cooke with one of the 
country’s leading choirs to create a 
deluxe limited edition album of all- 
time favorite hymns and gospel songs, 
it was learned last week. 

Cooke began his singing career with 
a gospel group, The Soul-Stirrers, in 
the Chicago church where his father 
was pastor. Since becoming a solo act, 
Cooke has always included several 
gospel songs in his concert repertoire 
and his just-released album, “Sam 
Cooke,” features two spirituals, “Goin’ 
Home” and “Swing Low, Sweet Char- 
iot.” 

The gospel album, brainchild of 
Cooke’s manager, Jess Rand, would 
include some of Cooke’s original com- 
positions in that field as well as gen- 
erations-old numbers which have be- 
come classified as “Folk music of the 
Negro race.” 

Two internationally-known choirs 
under consideration as background for 
the Sam Cooke solos are the Mormon 
Temple Choir of Salt Lake City, and 
the St. Olaf College Choir of North- 
field, Minn.

The Limel iters 



The Limeliters, newest folk singing 
group to hit the market, are as unique 
a trio of individuals as have ever 
achieved pop stardom. They’re cur- 
rently scoring with their first RCA 
Victor LP, “Tonight: In Person,” and 
are now making single noise with “A 
Dollar Down.” 

Lou Gottlieb, comic spokesman for 
the group, earned a Doctor of Philos- 
ophy in musicology from the Univ. of 
California for his dissertation on 15th 
Century cyclic mases. He was an orig- 
inal member of the Gateway Singers 
and has written hit arrangements for 
the Kingston Trio. Glenn Yarbrough, 
lyric tenor and classical guitarist, at- 
tended St. John’s College in Annapo- 
lis (Great Books Course) and studied 
philosophy at Mexico City College. 
Alex Hassilev, banjo-playing bari- 
tone, was born in France of Russian 
parents. He speaks fluently in five 
languages and sings in over a dozen 
more. In this age of conformity, the 
Limeliters are a refreshing new kind 
of act. 


The Chimes 



Patience, practice and perseverance 
are what the Chimes attribute to their 
current disk success. Up until the 
time of their first hit, “Once In A 
While,” which vaulted them into the 
national spotlight, they had spent two 
days a week for a year-and-a-half 
practicing and developing a unique 
group sound and diverse repertoire. 

The group — Leonard Cocco (lead- 
er), Patrick DePrisco (1st tenor), 
Richard Mercado (2nd tenor), Joseph 
Croce (baritone) and Patrick McGuire 
(bass) — formed two years ago in 
Brooklyn. They were “discovered” by 
Andy Leonetti, head of Tag Records, 
while making a demo in a New York 
recording studio. Leonetti cut them 
in “Once In A While” and has now 
followed that hit with another re- 
vamped evergreen, “I’m In The Mood 
For Love.”

ALL ABOUT DISK JOCKEYS 


In its second year of playing high school faculty teams, the WHK Radio- 
Oneders basketball team, comprised of station personnel, has racked up a 
record of 8 won and 12 lost. More important is the fact that these games, 20 so 
far this season with five more to go, has raised over $19,000 for the participat- 
ing schools and has made a lot of friends for the Cleveland station. So many 
friends, that WHK stands number one in the market in both the Hooper and 
Pulse surveys. The WHK squad is made up of disk jockeys Scott Burton, Eddie 
Clarke and Pat Fitzgerald, program director Gerry Spinn, musical director 
Neil McIntyre and, the star, deejay Johnny Holiday, who’s scored 469 points in 
20 games, leading all scorers with an average of 23.4 points per game. In 
addition, five station secretaries form the cheer-leading squad. . . . Also taking 



to the boards each week is the WIP-Philadelphia 61-ers, who’ve played a game 
each week for the past 17 weeks. Their opponents are also high school faculties, || 
but they haven’t fared as well as WHK, winning only one game all season. to I 
date. In addition, several WIP men have been hospitalized with injuries: Dick , 
Carr and engineer Tom Keegan suffered broken arms, PD Varner Paulsen sus- I i 
tained a seriously pulled leg muscle and Chuck Dougherty received severe 
back injuries while scuffling for a ball. Seems they play a harder brand of ball ] 
in Philadelphia. . . . With Sing-Along formats the current rage, WWRL-New 
York preems a new program April 3rd that offers a new radio approach to j [ 
gospel music. Yes, it’s a “Gospel Sing Along” and will be under the guidance 
of Prof. Herman Stevens, famed gospel organist and choir director, who will 
read the lyrics to each song before performing. Seems like a natural. 


Larry Gar is using Teddy & Eddy’s Mala recording of “Star Crossed Lovers” ; 
as part of a daily auto safety message to teen drivers. Gar says his WLBG-

straight safety pitch. . . . Jack Rattigan, WRCV-Philadelphia, proudly shouting 
the news that wife Adelaide gave finally birth to a girl. The Rattigans already J 
have three boys. . . . KQV-Pittsburgh general manager John D. Gibbs and 1

tion of a new series of musical station identification signatures. The jingles l> 
were written by Gibbs and Drury after expressing dissatisfaction with what | 
jingles were available for use on the station. Musical adaptation is being made ! 
by arranger-director Johnny Mann and recording is taking place at the RCA , 
Victor studios in Hollywood utilizing twenty-six top studio musicians and a | 
string section. The new “sound” should be on the KQV airwaves in early April. . 
. . . WINS-New York is conducting a motor boat race around Manhattan island i 
to launch the station’s new sexwice to area boating enthusiasts — boating news ' 
reports that will include off-shore weather, inlet reports, Coast Guard bulletins 
and safety reports. Participating in the race will be Stan Richards, Brad Phil- 
lips and Lonny Starr, all piloting 80 hp powered runabouts around the entire j 
island. Of course prizes are being offered to listeners who correctly guess 
winner and winning time. . . . Bob Cobbins writes from WYAL-Scotland Neck, j 
N. Carolina, that he, Tom Reeder and Mike Faulkner, all programming pop 
x-ock ’n roll, are in need of the latest disks. . . . The board of directors of the 
Maryland-D.C. Broadcasters’ Association announced that the summer meeting 
of the organization will be held in Ocean City, Md., June 23-24. At its recent 
meeting, held in the Broadcasters Club of Washington, the board also filled a 
vacancy by electing Russell Morgan of WTTR- Westminster, Md. The board 
also appointed a study committee to develop a state-wide traffic safety cam- 
paign. . . . Roland Bennett’s Shelley disking of “Money Crazy” getting big

VITAL STATISTICS: 

A complete reshuffling of the air staff at WERE-Cleveland brings the follow-

Johnny McKinney, from KQV-Pittsburgh; Jerry Miller, from KONO-San An- 
tonio; Mike March, from WIZE-Springfield, Ohio; Dick Blanchard, from WTAE- 
TV-Pittsburgh. Jeff Baxter, who’s been at WERE for two years, remains in 
the all-night slot. . . . Jim Tucker has been appointed director of programming

response to the newly released Brenda Lee pairing “You Can Depend On Me” 
b/w “It’s Never Too Late” as well as Bert Kaempfert’s single “Tenderly” plus 
his new album “The Wonderland Of Bert Kaempfert.” . . . Patti Page, cur- 
rently working on the sequel flicker “Dondi Goes To The Moon,” is set for a 1 
five weeks’ engagement at the Pigalle in London commencing 5/18. Prior to 
her European departure she’ll do guest shots on the Bob Hope TV’er 4/12 and p 
the Perry Como Show 5/3 — which adds up to a mighty busy schedule for the 
popular thrush. ... A sad sight for Frank Holzfiend was the recent razing of 
his now defunct Blue Note jazz palace where such great names as Duke Elling- 
ton, Count Basie, The Dukes Of Dixieland, Ahmad Jamal, etc., held sway for 
years. . . . English actor-singer Anthony Newley, scoring on the local airways ! 
with his London etching “And The Heavens Cried.” Alan Bress of J. H. Martin 
Distribs tells us Lawrence Welk’s follow up pairing “My Three Sons” b/w 
“Out Of A Clear Blue Sky” (Dot) is beginning to look like a double barreled 
smash. He’s predicting all out action with Dodie Stevens’ “I Fall To Pieces” \ 
and Roy Orbison’s “Running Scared.” 

Lovely June Valli enhances the Dave Garroway TV’er 4/3. Chirp’s latest on 
Mercury is “This World We Love In.” . . . Jack Teagarden and his Sextet, in at 
the London House commencing 3/28 for a return engagement. . . . Kent Beau- 
champ of Garlan Distribs is bursting with enthusiasm over local action on 
these newies: “Louisiana Mama” by Gene Pitney (Musicor); “Who Will The 
Next Fool Be” by Charlie Rich (Phillips); “Glory Of Love” by The Roomates 
(Valmor), who backed Cathy Jean on her current click “Please Love Me For- \ 
ever,” and A1 Caiola’s “Bonanza” (UA) which debuted on The Cash Box’ top 
100 chart last week. . . . An exciting new personality hereabouts is 23-year-old 
piano whiz Don Drumm who has his debut deck on the Chi based Century label. 
It’s the Don Drumm Trio’s version of “Shortnin’ Bread.” 

Deejay Milo Hamilton (WIND) will emcee the big starstudded record hop to 
be presented by the Ta-Rah Record Co. at the Aragon Ballroom 4/22-4/23. 
Appearing with headliner Bobby Rydell will be Danny & The Juniors, The 
Mustwangs, Johnny Mastro, Ral Donner, Dicky Doo & The Dont’s, Bobby 
Comstock & The Counts and Jerry Granahan. . . . Arnold’s Ralph Cox, spieling 
’bout chart potentials “Shhh” by Arthur Smith & The Cracker Jacks (Choice); 
“Shuranga” by Merv Griffin (Carlton); “Bimbo” by Jimmy Banner (20th) and 
“The Trapp Family” sound track on 20th Fox from the foreign flicker currently 
showing at the Loop theater here. Incidentally, Ralph’s a pretty proud poppa j 
these days since his 12-year-old son, Stephen, has been displaying big league | 
skill on the Little League pitcher’s mound. . . . Local folk palace, The Gate Of - j 
Horn, moved to new and larger quarters at 1036 N. State St. ... A big welcome j 
to ex-coinman James “Jay” Albrent who enters the records circle as Milwaukee I 
promo man for Music Distribs. . . . RCA’s Stan Pat tells us he’s getting excel- 
lent exposure here with Skeeter Davis’ newie “The Hand You’re Holding” 
which, he feels, can go all the way. Another of the label’s new releases is a 
bouncer “Green Finger” by recent pactee Gary Clarke. . . . Eddie Harris, click- 
ing with “Exodus” (Vee-Jay) wound up an SRO week at the Sutherland nitery.

of Hart Dist., informs the Ivy Three are snaring air-play with their new Shell

Canada’s Phonodisc In 
Sixth Year 

TORONTO — Phonodisc Limited, the 
diskery established in Canada for the 
exclusive purpose of manufacturing 
4 and distributing the products of Indie 
labels in the U.S., marked the comple- 
tion of its fifth year in business on 
April 1, and entered its sixth year 
with big promotional activity on its 
various single and LP best-sellers. 

As a part of its stepped up sales- 
service program, Phonodisc will place 
greater emphasis on “spot selling,” 
' which calls for salesmen to carry all 
best-selling singles and albums along 
with them, selling, delivering and in- 
voicing “on the spot.” This was one 
of topper Don McKim’s basic, ap- 
proaches to the business when he 
formed Phonodisc and, while the ex- 
tent of the catalog handled by the 
company today does not permit the 
| "'merchandising of all product in this 
manner, he believes it lengthens the 
life and total volume on best-sellers 
“up to 40%, ” based on the company’s 
past experience. 

Phonodisc headquarters are at 355 
King Street West, Toronto, Ontario, 
with company-owned branches in 
Montreal, serving eastern Canada, 

""and Winnipeg, serving the mid-west. 
Van Dusen Bros, distribute for Phono- 
disc in Alberta, Select Music in Brit- 
ish Columbia. 

One of the occasions leading up to 
Phonodisc’s fifth birthday was an 
elaborate press and radio reception 
in Montreal’s Queen Elizabeth Hotel 
m honor of Jane Morgan, one of the 
top stars of the Kapp label, which 
Phonodisc has manufactured and dis- 
tributed in Canada since the inception 
of the Canadian firm. The reception 
was held in co-operation with Chry- 
sler of Canada, which starred Miss 
Morgan in its annual “Spring Festi- 
val.” 

m Other labels distributed by Phono- 
disc are Audio Fidelity, Cai'lton, King 
and Vee Jay. 


Renee Taylor On Felsted 

Renee Taylor, seen on the Jack Paar 
and Perry Como TV shows, has cut

leased last week on the Felsted label,

Miss Taylor, principally an actress 
and comedienne, is also a singer, hav- 
ing appeared in many musical produc- 
tions. Her next is in the role of Ado 
Annie in “Carousel” at Hyannis, 
Mass, this summer. 



THE HAGUE, HOLLAND— Earnest- 
ly discussing current record trends

The head of the German government, Dr. Konrad Adenauer, no longer has to 
worry about a family scrapbook. His life has now been recorded on a 2 record 
set, called “From My Life,” by Electrola. The 2 LP set retailing for 10 dollars 
relates the life of Dr. Adenauer from his youth until the present day. Docu- 
mentary recordings of this type are becoming more and more popular in 
Germany. Ariola also has a 3 record set of “Germany’s Way To Dictatorship,” 
which depicts the rise of the Hitler regime. On the lighter side, the top record- 
ing artists of years gone by have also been set on new waxings by most firms. 
From comedy to music, the sets are coming out of the pressing plants in great 
numbers and are selling in great quantities. . 

Jazz harmonica-guitar player “Toots” Thiel emans, who spent many years 
with The George Shearing Quintet after leaving his native Belgium, has re- 
corded his first European album as a soloist. The LP called “Road To Ro- 
mance,” features “Toots” with the Kurt Edelhagen Orchestra. 

Connie Francis is once again in the Germay-Austria area. After her presen- 
tation of the Golden Lion from Radio Luxemburg as the most requested artist 
of this year, Connie is now in Vienna for new recordings in German and a TV 
show with Peter Kraus. 

It took a long time, but the big recording of “The Mule Skinner Blues” has 
finally been done by Peter Alexander and American comedian Bill Ramsey and 
is fast becoming a best seller here. 

The Pye- Vogue group has its first German production on the market. It’tei 
a recording of the Eurovision tune “Fate is Yours” recorded by Ernst Lothar. 
Philips songstress Heidi Bruhl has her new film “One Prettier Than The Other” 
finished, and the hit song from the picture, “Tomorrow It Can All Be Over,” 
backed with “Caballero, Caballero” is now on the market and beginning to 
move fast. 

400 yard dash man Carl Kaufmann, is in top form as a singer at present. The 
youngster is in top demand as a performer and is now once again underway 
on a big tour through Austria and Germany with Max Gregor and his orches- 
tra. His newest record, “In One Night In Taormina,” has also just been re- 
leased. Polydor is busy preparing the first “answer record” for the German 
market. It will be the answer to “Are You Lonesome Tonight.” It’s the first 
time that a recording of this sort has been presented to the German record 
buyer. 

The newest in the pop festival series begins on April 21. The TV series will 
have 4 prelims. Each week from a different city, 6 tunes will be presented. 
The top 2 tunes from each preliminary contest will then be nresented on June 
4 from Baden-Baden TV and the winners will be decided. This festival is ex- 
pected to have a great influence on the record buying public because of the 
great TV exposure of the material. 

The newest recording of Cologne comedian Willy Millowitsch has had a 
great start. The song, “The Heai-t of Cologne,” was used in a play starring 
Millowitsch and was presented 3 times in the same play. Shops all over the 
country have reported great response to the promotion. 

The South American craze, “The Pachanga,” will be used in a new film 
called “The Hazy Osterwald Story” now being filmed in Munich. The film will 
feature The Hazy Osterwald Sextet and new songstress Audrey Arno. 

The new TV series, “Meeting New York,” presented by Werner Baecker from 
New York is having a great impact on the record buying public. Werner is 
busy presenting top recording stars and even excerpts from “Record Hops” 
which will certainly tend to introduce many top American stars to the record 
buying public. This ought to make way for more tours from American stars 
and better sales for their recordings in this country. 

Electrola star Rocco Granata claims that he has set a record. He received 
a fan letter of 257 written pages from a young lass in Holland. 

Metronome reports that Joergen Ingmann is fast becoming its top recording 
star. The guitar playing youngster set the market afire with his recording of 
“Apache” and his “Pepe” is at present, outselling the hit version of Duane 
Eddy. 

Ariola has added two well known names to its stable of artists: former Phil- 
ips star Celine and Dorit Oliver have joined the label. 

Because of the great response to the “Lassie” TV series here, 12 year old 
Little Wolfi has recorded an original German composition called “Lassie Come 
Home.” Aside from his singing ability, the youngster also plays 5 instruments. 

Both Ariola and Polydor are busy releasing EP’s of opera works. The most 
popular songs from operas are being set on EP albums and are selling well as 
the price of 1.75 cents is in reach of a greater buying public than the much 
more expensive LP versions. 

Dr. Karlheinz Busse reports that his publishing firm has bought the new 
Doris Day number, “Bright and Shiny,” and that Heidi Bruhl will do the song. 

Metronome records topper Borje Ekberg from Sweden is traveling around 
Germany with the label’s top artist Siw Malmkvist. American arranger — A&R 
man Dick Wolfe, who produced Brian Hyland’s “Itsy Bitsy” has turned out a 
playback in New York for Siw on a number called “Wedding Cake.” The 
number has been dubbed in English, Swedish, Danish and German. The German 
version was texted by Carl Ulrich Blecher with the title “Thanks for the 
Flowers” and will be released shortly. The English version was just released 
on English Columbia, and N.Y. rep Claes Dahlgren is setting the deal for the 
U.S. 

The artist-manager team visited Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Luxemburg, Co- 
logne, Frankfurt and Hamburg and French and Italian versions of the song 
are in the works. It’s the biggest push that Metronome has ever given to an 
artist and a song, and Siw should be showing up on the charts soon with her 
“Wedding Cake.” That’s it for this week in Germany.

Following their success at Cannes in the Eurovision Song Contest where 
they won second place for the United Kingdom with their own composition 
“Are You Sure” The Allisons returned to London and a flood of engagements. 
With sales of “Are You Sure” now at 300,000 Fontana this week rush released 
their first L.P. — also entitled “Are You Sure.” Five of the twelve tracks are 
their own compositions. EPs of The Allisons are released in France, Holland 
and Scandinavia. 


Sid Coleman of Ardmore & Beechwood has acquired the British publishing 
rights of “Angelique” — the Danish entry which came 5th in the Eurovision 
Song Contest. English lyrics have been penned by Norman Newell and E.M.I. 
is planning an early release. The Italian entry “A1 Di La” which also came 
5th is published here by Leeds Music. Several companies plan recordings as 
soon as English lyrics have been written. 

Carlo Krahmer of Esquire Records has signed an exclusive agreement with 
Oliver Berliner, President of Oberline Inc. of California to issue the Tropicana 
International labels in this country. Described as “Swinging Latin American 
Music For Listening or Dancing” the first releases (12" LPs) under the agree- 
ment will be issued shortly on Esquire’s subsidiary label — Starlite, the same 
label which, three months ago, put out the children’s playlet “Inkas, The Ram- 
ferinkas” from Oberline’s ‘Tot’ label. 

Brice Somers, International Director of Mercury Records, flew into London 
this week from his base in Geneva. Somers has just completed a three-week 
trip to the States where he visited Mercury’s headquarters in Chicago and 
New York taking in Mexico City and a visit to the company’s plant in Rich- 
mond, Indiana. Whilst in America Somers discussed the Mercury project for 
tailoring the popular catalog — both singles and albums— to the English taste. 
Another of Mercury’s plans for the future is the stepping up of personal ap- 
pearances of their artists in this country and Patti Page has been booked for 
A1 Burnett’s Pigalle Theatre-Restaurant commencing May 15th. TV dates are 
also being arranged and to coincide with her first visit to England Mercury 
will issue her American album “The West Side” — retitled for the English 
market “Romance in Rhythm.” Tapes of Patti Page items not previously issued 
are being sent for Roy Squires of Mercury Repertoire to select material for re- 
lease on singles. Another artist likely to visit England will be Frank D’Rone 
who had a lot of success here with “Strawberry Blonde” and Mercury has high 
hopes for his follow-up disk “Yea, Yea Baby.” New artists recently signed to 
the Mercury label include Billy Eckstine and Toni Arden. 

Somers also informed The Cash Box of the first ever Latin-American Con- 
gress, incorporating all record companies, wdiich is to be held in Rio de Janeiro 
in June. Mercury will hold its own Record Convention in Mexico in September. 

Another globe-trotting member of the Mercury team, European Manager, 
Richard (Dick) Whittington, is expected back in London shortly after visiting 
licencees in Greece, Israel, and South Africa. His itinerary also included a trip 
to Yugoslavia for the formation of licencees in that territory. 

PARIS 

During a recent visit to Paris called at the offices of Denis Bourgeois of 
Bagatelle Music, publishers of “Nous Les Amoureux” (We Lovers) the •win- 
ning song for Luxembourg in the Eurovision Song Contest. Bourgeois reports 
that the song is now handled in Italy by Curci, Belgium — Editions Moderny, 
Holland — Altona, Germany and Austria — Montana, Spain — Grammofono. Ne- 
gotiations for representation in the United Kingdom are still proceeding. Big 
reaction is already reported from all countries particularly Italy and Germany. 
The original recording by Jean Claude Pascal which is available in France on 
Pathe-Marconi is released here this week on H.M.V. An orchestral version by 
Franck Pourcel is available in France on Pathe-Marconi and in the United 
States on Capitol. It is expected that within a month there will be 20 recordings 
of the number in France alone. 


The drop in record sales brought about by the advent of TV in France seems 
likely to continue. Still rapidly expanding statistics show that when a new 
provincial transmitter comes into operation record sales in that area decline. 
With 43 million population records sales are between 12 and 15 million a year. 
The biggest market is for 45 r.p.m EPs. The singles market being confined 
solely to juke boxes and exploitation. Purchase tax is 25% as opposed to 50% 
in England. 

A visit was paid to Pathe-Marconi — associate company of E.M.I. A & R 
Manager for the International Department, Roger Maruani told The Cash Box 
that the company’s biggest seller at the moment is Edith Piaf whose latest 
release “Exodus” is the follow-up to her No. 1 hit “Non Je Ne Regrette Rien.” 
Les Compagnons de la Chanson also enjoy phenomenal success. In the light 
orchestral field Franck Pourcel and his Orchestra enjoy top sales. Pourcel 
reached the No. 1 slot in The Cash Box Top 100 a few years ago with “Only 
You.” 


Called on Andre Jeanneret of Decca Disques, the company which has the 
second largest factory in France with 60 presses. Currently riding high with 
“Pepito” by Los Machucambos (Decca) and “Pepe” by Duane Eddy (London). 
Also met Mrs. Leah Evans of Playette Records of America, in Paris for dis- 
cussions -with Hatchettes — largest publishers in France — concerning the release 
in the United States of Decca and Philips ‘Spoken Word’ recordings including 
the ‘Tante Laura’ series comprising 24 EPs of nursery rhymes, fables etc. 

A brief visit to Philips and a meeting with M. Plait of the A & R Depart- 
ment and Assistant to Jacques Canetti — the man responsible for recordings by 
top author-composer-singer George Brassens, Jacques Brel, Juliette Greco, 
Freres Jacques and Jacqueline Francoise. Philips with Pathe-Marconi specialise 
in annual 10" LP releases by their leading artists which are best sellers. 

Establishing in France three years ago Fontana Records release “Are You 
Sure” by The Allisons. A & R Manager, Philippe Weil told The Cash Box that 
following the great success of American jazz albums particularly those of 
Miles Davis the company is planning a new 12" LP Jazz album for international 
release recording, by top American and French musicians — Don Byas, Lucky 
Thompson, Maurice Vander, Kenny Clarke and Pierre Michelot. Plans have 
also been finalized for pianist Maurice Vander to record in this country with

Johnny Gregory and his Band for Fontana’s London A & R Manager, Jack 
Baverstock. 


Visited the new headquarters of Vogue Records established in 1948 by the 
present Director Leon Cabat. Vogue also has offices in Belgium, Switzerland 
and Germany. Their biggest name at the moment is Johnny Halliday, who, 
since his discovery a year ago by A & R Manager Jacques Wolfsohn, has re- 
corded 28 sides. His latest release is “24 Thousand Baisers.” Negotiations are 
underway for him to record here in English for Pye. M. Cabat told The Cash 
Box that a large proportion of the company’s success is due to Sydney Bechet 
who has been under exclusive contract to Vogue for 12 years. During this 
time he has recorded over 100 titles with total sales of 10,000,000. 

A call was made on Eddie Barclay of Barclay Disques who has been ac- 
claimed “The Best European Record Producer of 1960.” Barclay said that 
with three major No. 1 hits “Mustapha” by Bob Azzam, “Les Enfants Du Piree” 
and “Itsy Bitsy” both by Dalida the last year has been one of the most pros- 
perous in the company’s fast expanding history. During her five years exclu- 
sive contract with Barclay Dalida has become one of France’s foremost re- 
cording stars with international status. Individual artists from Barclay Disques 
are distributed in the U.K. by Decca and E.M.I. Under the direction of Philippe 
Boutet the company’s publishing outlet Editions Barclay is currently riding 
high with “Non Je Ne Regrette Rien.” 


Blue Diamonds Arrive In Stockholm 



STOCKHOLM- — Dutch-Indonesian brother team, the Blue Diamonds, appear

SCANDINAVIA 



SWEDEN 

The big headlines here these days deal with Sweden’s poor success in Cannes. 
Everything is criticized, often correctly. One of the more reliable views on the 
situation declares that “there must be something wrong with the juries or with 
the competition in general.” The papers continue to feel that all songs which 
have topped the European charts during the year wouldn’t stand a chance if 
judged the way the juries voted this year. Songs like “Itsy Bitsy ...” “Sailor,” 
“Everybody’s Somebody’s Fool,” “Klas Goran,” etc. would probably have ended 
up at the bottom of the list, though some sold near or over 100,000 in Sweden 
only. EBU (European Broadcasting Union) suggested clearer specifications of 
which kind of music is wanted at those festivals. It seems certain that the 
Melodi Grand Prix is not looking for songs which have any particular chances 
for the charts. To judge from this year’s Grand Prix, only the British entry, 
“Are You Sure,” sung by The Allisons, is expected to reach the top in Sweden. 
The Danish song “Angelique” (given two votes out of ten possible by the 
Swedish jury) was 11th on the Swedish Best Sellers before Cannes (it still 
holds the same position). It is also suggested here that the rules for the local 
competitions should be changed. Preferred is the British way of arranging the 
competitions, which means that the record companies record a song they send 
to the competition, but are not allowed to publish /release the record until after 
the local festival. Another suggestion is that for the future the competition 
should be a teamwork between the teams responsible for each composition, 
i.e. the composer, lyric writer, producer, arranger and artist, in other words, 
all people who are more or less responsible for the song and the way it is 
performed. It is also desired that the jury should consist of trade people who 
understand more of what is going on. The juries are too far away from teen 
ages (in a time when it is teenagers who decide if a song or record should be 
a bestseller or not) and know and understand too little about the music trade 
to be able to give those Festivals any serious meaning. And the discussion con- 
tinues in Sweden. . . . 

Erik Nyholm of Svenska Siemens AB (Polydor, Deutsche Grammophon, 
Archiv, Heliodor) reports that “Seemann” (Sailor) with Lolita might reach 
the sales peak of 100,000 in Sweden, which means a Gold Disk here. He also 
told The Cash Box that Toots Thielemann is expected to become a great top 
seller on Polydor in near future. Already known as a jazz musician, his recent 
EP, including “Calcutta” and “Mack The Knife,” is so commercial that it has 
good possibilities of becoming a top seller among Sweden's record buyers. 
Three of the songs from the EP has been placed at Polydor in Germany for 
an LP. 

At Philips-Sonora’s office at Kungsgatan 29, carpenters are busy these days. 
The company is re-organizing, and there are three new offices needed. Working 
from these offices will be Ake Ohqvist, producer for Philips, Curt Pettersson, 
producer for Fontana, and Ake Cedermyr, producer for Sonora and Sonata. 
Gote Wilhelmsson will remain musical adviser for the whole company. Ingvar 
Eriksson, publicity head, told The Cash Box that “Are You Sure” with the Al- 
lisons on Fontana was released here the day after the Cannes Festival, where 
the song came in at second place. “It was like the Christmas rush at the office 
here on that Sunday and Monday and more records were ordered than we had 
pressed,” Eriksson said. 

Thor Skogman, publicity head and singer at Cupol, said that he has written 
a new song which he expects a lot from. The title is “Antligen, Antligen Min” 
(Finally, Finally Mine) and it is published by Edition Odeon in Sweden and by 
Carl M. Iversen in Norway. The Cupol recording with Skogman and a Knap- 
pupp recording by Lily Berglund will be released in Sweden simultaneously. 
In Norway, the song was recorded in Norwegian by Inger Jacobsen on Co- 
lumbia and the record became a best seller from the start- Last week, it 
jumped from 31 to 10 on the Norwegian Best Sellers. Skogman also said that 
Cupol has contracted trumpet player Weine Renliden for some EP’s. 

Roland Edling, producer at EMI here, reported that HMV is rushing out 
the winning song from Cannes, “Nous les Amoureux” (We, the Beloved). Fin- 
nish-Danish trumpet player Lill-Jorgen (Jorgen Pedersen) has recorded “An- 
gelique,” the Danish entry at Cannes, and the record has already been released 
here. 

New sheet music releases from Gehrmans here are “The Maid of Novgorod,” 
“Theme from The Dark at the Top of the Stairs” and new copies of the old 
standards “Rhapsody in Blue,” “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “It Could Happen To

Verdens Gang, one of the dailies here, said in an article that this year’s 
winner in Cannes should have been disqualified as it was against the irnles. 
The song, “Nous les Amoureux,” was sung by French actor Jean-Claude Pascal, 
which is okay according to the stipulations. However, the lyric writer, M. Vi- 
dalin and composer J. Datin are also French, and the rules for Melodi Grand 
Prix states that the composer and lyric writers must be citizens of the country 
their song represents. And since no one of these two gentlemen are citizens of 
Luxembourg, “someone must have changed the rules without notifying any- 
body about it.” 

New top seller on the Norwegian Best Sellers this week is an Italian record- 
ing of “Romantiea,” sung by Robertino on Triola. It has succeeded Lolita’s 
“Sailor,” which was number one during the last nine weeks. 

Swedish singer Anita Lindblom has done very well in the music show in 
which she appears in Oslo.

BENELUX 


Holland's Best Sellers 


BELGIUM 

“Baba Au Rhum,” of which about twenty records have been released in the 
oast three months and of which Annie Cordy’s version proved to be the most 
commercial, comes to the front once again. In fact, a new series of recordings 
are set and the publishers will accompany them with big publicity. 

Mr De Keukelere, director of music-publishing firms Editions Moderny, 
Celtic and Coda, (at Mouscron), made four sides with the Italian group I Tro- 
vatori which will be released under the Victory label. The Italians are m Bel- 
gium at the moment and are a big success. . , , , , , • 

Philips just issued an EP of the Trio Cassiman (two brothers and t e 
sister) .winners of the “Grand Prix de Varietes in a Negro spirituals Contest. 

Decca launched a new teenage artist, Jack Wery, who recorded two of his 
own compositions, “Coup De Foudre” and “On Danse. The first record of the 
vocal group from Antwerp, The Jokers, proved to be a hit. Zet Die TV Af 
and “Cecilia Rock” (Philips. The very young Philips artist Rimini (15) still 
meets with approval from the public. Records of young French rock-stai 
Johnny Holliday (Vogue) reach high sales in Belgium, especially Souvenirs 
Souvenirs,” “Nous Les Gars, Nous Les Filles,” and “24.000 Baisers. Another 
hit of Vogue is “Les Tomates” by Jack Ary. It’s an extraordinary cha cha, with 
an amusing and original introduction. Adriano Celentano from Italy, also a 
Vogue artist, is attracting big attention with his number one Italian hit, 24.000 

Ba Tohama just recorded “Tu Mens” for Decca; it’s one of her big successes of 
about 10 years ago. Leo Ferre comes to the fore with “Paname and J one 
Mome,” two of his own compositions, recorded for Barclay. _ 

There’s a new French rock ’n’ roll group, “Les Chausette Noirs, introduced 
on the Belgian record market by Barclay. 

HOLLAND 

Chancellor Records distribution in Holland went from C. N. Rood to Artone, 
Haarlem. The label’s top stars, Frankie Avalon and Fabian, have a big follow- 
ing in the Netherlands. Artone also has been appointed as distributors for 
Delta Records for the time being, since the new company was not yet able to 
set up its own distribution offices in time to release “Wat Een Dag, Dutch 
entry of the Eurovision Song Festival. , , , 

German music is still increasing in popularity m Holland. Basart has adapted 
its repertoire to this increasing demand. A number of Dutch authors are writing 
German songs of which the first have been recorded recently: “kangita Mia 
and “Die Goldene Sterne.” There is a good demand in Germany, too, for this 
Dutch-German production. Basart obtained the Benelux-rights from Edition 
Budde Berlin, of a Connv & Peter success, “Das Geht Die Leute Gar Nichts An 
(Nothing Of Nobody’s Business). One of the biggest Dutch successes of recent 
years has been the Peter Meisel-Connie song “Midi-Midinette, published by 
Basart in Holland. ,. 

Alfred K. Schacht, European manager of the Hill & Range pubbery, and di- 
rector of Aberbach-Hamburg, just visited Holland for business talks with 
Eldert van Zoeren, Belinda chief in this country. 

The Commercial Neutral Broadcasting Company C.N.B.C., operating from 
the ship Veronica on the coast of Holland, discontinued its transmission to 
England. Reception conditions in England were not what was expected. Now, 
the Dutch commercial station Radio Veronica broadcasts the whole day long 
for Holland. After the increasing of the transmission power, the station can 
be heard in the greater part of Holland. , 

Bovema’s His Master’s Voice label was the indirect winner of this year s 
European TV-Songfestival at Cannes, through its fine Luxembourg repre- 
sentative Jean Claude Pascal, who obtained the highest honor with Nous, Les 
Amoureux.” Immediately after the festival, Bovema worked publicity stints 
to promote the record as the 1961-winner. 

Charming Greetje Kauffeld, Dutch vocalist who records for Decca, gave an 
attractive and well sung version of “Wat Een Dag” at the Cannes festival. 
It’s expected Greetje will be seen on TV in several countries in the near future. 
At the same festival, Belgian singer Bob Benny sang the beautiful “September 
Gouden Roos” (September Golden Rose). This version is on Philips here. Al- 
though it didn’t come high on the list, the record may become a good seller. 
Bob Benny is well known here; he is one of the best singers from Belgium. The 
song is a high class musical composition with tender words telling a romantic 

Latest Doris Day album release here is “What Every Girl Should Know. 
Quite a lot of good songs on this LP: “Mood Indigo” and “When You’re Smil- 
ing” are standards, but the other songs, though not well known, are a welcome 
treat, especially in these wonderful versions by the ever popular Doris (Philips; 
L.C. Phonogram). 

Conniff with a Latin beat . . . that’s the big attraction of the album ‘ Say 
It With Music.” Ray Conniff tells it in his own musical way, for which he has 
become famous, and one of the real big names on the Dutch LP market. “Say 
It Wjth Music” contains such favorites as “Besame Mucho’ and “Brazil 
(Philips). _ 

Warner Bros, made the Dutch record-market happy with the release of “The 
Utterly Fantastic Swedanes,” the wonderful LP by Alice Babs, Sven Asmussen 
and Ulrik Neumann, three artists gaining a lot of respect in America. Their 
style is one of the freshest sounds in music today, says Mr. Pompe, Warner’s 
label manager for Bovema. Also their EP featuring 4 of their LP-songs has 
been released of late. 

The Capitol label highlights a new single- and EP-repertoire featuring Les 
Baxter’s Orchestra and Chorus, Nat Cole (Cachito-EL Bodeguero), Ferlin 
Husky, Jonah Jones, Dean Martin and Gene Vincent, Jonah Jones’ “Mack The 
Knife” and Nat Cole’s EP “Welcome To The Club” are among the strongest 
sellers of the label, says Mr. Hundepool, Bovema’s Capitol-label manager. 

“Funckler Gramofoonplaten” manager Pete Felleman told The Cash Box his 
Barry Sisters’ Roulette releases keeps moving. “I have 3 Barry Singles, 2 EP’s 
and 2 LP’s on the market,” he said, “and these things seem to be growing week 
after week.” “Hava Nagila” is definitely in the hit-class and “Tumbala-Lila” 
is climbing into that category rapidly. 

On the occasion of the Cannonball Adderley concerts in Holland on April 8, 
Felleman released the Riverside album, “The Cannonball Adderley Quintet At 
The Lighthouse.” “If it does half as well as their San Francisco Album,” said 
Felleman, “we’ll have another big album seller on our hands.” 

The Cousins, strong rock quartet from Belgium, are still scoring with their 
“Kili Watch” etching, which is now on all the Dutch charts. Their follow-up, 
“Kana Kapila,” had a solid start and is doing very well. Group records for 
Palette, also distributed by Funckler, a division of Artone. Another Palette 
artist, veteran 88’er Peter Kreuder waxed a 10-incher containing 10 entries of 
the annual Eurovision Song Festival in Cannes, considered the biggest Euro- 
pean TV spectacular of the year. Album is another brainchild of internationally 
renown record exec Jacques Kluger. Checker platter “The Watusi” by The 
Vibrations released by Funckler, started off surprisingly well.

A Family Affair 


BRUSSELS — The Cousins, Belgian quartet, receive a gold record for 100 0C 
sales on their Palette (Belgium) recording of “Kili Watch.” Making the pre: 
entation is Jan Theys (at right, with microphone), public relations officer ( 
Palette. 



tional Eurovision song contest, has already been sold in most countries of the 
world. Denys Bourgeois and Brigitte Bertolier, who engineered this masterly 
job in their first months at Bagatelle Editions, will now try to make the song 
France’s No. 1 best-seller. All the recording companies are at work waxing the 
tune — or will do so. First in line, Frank Pourcell and his orch. for Pathe- 
Marconi. The song also means a big break for Jean-Claude Pascal, who pre- 
sented it in the competition, and for Pathe-Marconi, who has thus a new sing- 
ing star to back and one whose name is already known in the theatre, cinema 
and music world. 

Time marches on — and the recordings of the tune, “Exodus” also. Latest to 
date, Lucien Lupi and the String Boys on EMI. Les Compagnons de la Chanson, 
after waxing “La Semaine” (“Perfect Love”) have followed it up with “Si 
Tous Les Oiseaux.” Big success too for the track of the movie “A Bout de 
Souffle,” composed and arranged by pianist Martial Solal. 

Capitol announced the release of “Pepe” by Les Baxter and “The World In 
My Arms” by Nat King Cole. MGM offers a new Harry James 12-inch LP. 

Big attendance at the showings in Paris of the Italian film, “La Notte”; 
EMI is marketing the track. All the firms seem to be following the lead of 
Fontana with its series of film albums. Seems United Artists will issue Don 
Costa’s version of the themes from “The Misfits.” 

Daniele Rouille (Ducretet Thomson) is a young singer, talented and prom- 
ising. After a rather long silence, she has finally waxed two Joel Holmes’ 
songs, “Tes yeux” and “Soleil du Dimanche.” 

At Chappell publishers, everybody is preoccupied with the music from “Le 
Petit Monde de Suzy Wong” now that the success of “Exodus” is a sure thing 
and Daniel Darrieux (EMI) will be the next to record the firm’s “Les Voix du 
Ciel.” Piaf has added Dumont and Poterat’s “Le Bruit de Villes” to her re- 
corded repertoire. Speaking of Piaf — her Olympia stint stops soon to make 
way for a tour in Belgium and then a well-earned rest. 

Marcel Amont has waxed a beautiful song from the pens of Vidalin and 
Mansart, “Tombe de l’eau.” Les Trumpet Boys for Philips and Arturo Diaz 
for EMI have also put this title on disks. 

News from Supraphon, and good news, too. Latest issues on this fine label 
include a series of three LP albums comprising chamber music works by Jan 
Kapr and Emul Hlobil and a flute concerto by Feld interpreted in masterly 
fashion by Jean Pierre Rampal. Works by Milos Sokola and Element Slavicky 
complete the series. 

Palette’s Jacques Heilman tells us that newest releases on the label, distrib- 
uted by Bel-Air, include “Boudha” by Les Cousins and “Viva El Cha Cha” by 
Los Boxeros. In the absence of Phil Boutet (Barclay Editions), who accom- 
panied Nicole Barclay on her latest trek to Prague, MacGrave informs us that 
the film, “Pepe,” will reach Paris early this month. In addition to the numer- 
ous recordings of the tune already mentioned, buyers will have versions by 
“Les Bohemes” and Arturo Motta on Bel-Air and by Jackie Noguez and 
Aimable on Vogue. 

A new orchestra for the RCA label — Aragon — with a first 12-inch album 
entitled “Maracas, Bongo y Conga.” On the same label, a 12-incher by guitar- 
ist Carlos Montoya called “Flamenco.” Promised soon, an Elvis Presley EP 
including “Surrender,” “Flaming Star” and “Summer Kisses, Winter Tears.” 
Classical releases: the stereo version of Sveiatoslav Richter’s interpretation of 
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2 and a new version of the “Nutcracker Suite” con- 
ducted by Fritz Reiner. 

Decca will reissue “L’Ecole des Maris” recorded by the late Mado Robin, 
accompanied by J. Giraudot and X. Depraz. Robin’s posthumous popularity 
continues tot grow. . . . We don’t know whether Decca signed to distribute Dot 
Records here, but the disks continue to come out and the latest on the market 
are “Calcutta” by Lawrence Welk and a new Buddy Knox, “I Got You.” Note 
release of a curious Fernandel disk, “Tango Corse” with “Ma Gretchen de 
Munich” on the flip side. 

Pigalle Editions’ Salvet reports that D. Pickens, vice-president of Associated 
Artists, is here for discussions on an eventual contract. Anatole Litvak also in 
town for meets on the launching of the “Aimez-vous Brahms” film track to be 
handled jointly by Barclay and Salvet. The tune “Shopping Around” has be- 
come, in French, “Je ne Veux Plus Etre Un Drageur.” This Michel Emer adap- 
tation will be disked by Johnny Halliday and Les Chausettes Noires. 

“Spanish Harlem,” in French, “Nuit d’Espagne” will be cut first of all by 
Dalida on the Barclay tag. French lyrics by Morisse and Salvet. “Geisha,” 
French title for the tune, “I Count the Tears” will reach record buyers via 
Thien-Huong on Barclay, followed by Maya Casabianca on Philips. 

Speaking of “Calcutta” — Leon Cabat of Vogue preferred to have Petula 
Clark record the older French version by Guy Favereau and entitled “Ma Fete 
a Moi.” Which of the two current versions will strike the public’s fancy? 

Vogue will release a Johnny Halliday record made during the rock ’n roll 
show at the Palais de Sports. It’s a 10-inch LP and the first pressing will be 
70,000 copies. The pressing figure is based on fan mail received by Johnny after 
his triumph at the concert. That other famed rock ’n roller, C°lentan«. will tour 
the “midi” this coming summer for a series of one-night performances. 
Aimable, whose fame as an accordionist is growing in Germany, will record 
each month’s German hits. Colette Renard will return to sing at “Chez ma 
C-ousine,” the cafe high on Montmarte hill, where she started her career.

A Look At The Market In Iceland 


News from Iceland will appear as a 
regular part of the Scandinavian col- 
umn, but in this first article from the 
Icelandic market, some details view- 
ing the general situation are pre- 
sented in detail. 

First some general information. 
Iceland is an island of about the same 
size as Kentucky with a population 
of 170,000 inhabitants. For many 
years it was united to Denmark, but 
in 1944 it declared itself independent 
and became a republic. 

Reykjavik is the capitol of Iceland 
with around 70,000 inhabitants. There 
are some other cities, all of them lo- 
cated around the coasts of the island. 
There are no people living in the cen- 
tral island, which is occupied by moun- 
tains, some of which have the charac- 
ter of volcanos. 

Culture-wise, the tales of the Edda, 
originating from around 900 A.C., are 
considered pearls in the European lit- 
erature, and music and theatre also 
have a good reputation. 

There are three record companies 
producing recordings in Icelandic. 
Verzlunin Drangey is the most active 
with two domestic labels, Islenzkir 
Tonar and Stjornuhljomplotur. Dur- 
ing 1960, Islenzkir Tonar produced 12 
singles, 10 EPs and 4 12" LPs. 
Stjornuhljomplotur released 4 singles. 
HMV is handled by Falkinn H/F 
(EMI in Iceland) and released 4 EP’s 
and one LP during 1960. Finally, 
there is the HSH label, produced by 
Hljodfaeraverzlun Sigridar Helgadot- 

The Cash Box — April 8, 1961 


tir. HSH released one record during 
1960. Figures here refer to domestic 
recordings in Icelandic only. 

For 1960, the most popular record- 
ings in Icelandic were: Einski Kaldi 
Ur Ceyjunum (Odinn Valdimarsson — 
Atlantic Quintet/Islenzkir Tonar), Eg 
Er Krominn Heim (Odinn Valdimars- 
son — K. K. Sextet/Islenzkir Tonar), 
Vertu Ekki Ad Horfa Svona Alltaf 
a Mig (Ragnar Bjarnason/Islenzkir 
Tonar) Hun Var Med Dimmbla Augu 
(Ragnar Bjarnason/Islenzkir Tonar), 
Mer Er Skemmt (Omar Ragnarsson/ 
HSH), Pu Ert Ungur Enn (Erling 
Agustsson/Stjornuhljomplotur) , Pors- 
merkurljod (Svavar Gest Ork./Islenz- 
kir Tonar), Eg Vil Fara Upp i Sveit 
(Elly Vilhjalms — K. K. Sextet/Islenz- 
kir Tonar), Gleym Mer Ei Vinur (He- 
lena Eyjolfsdottir — Atlantic Quintet/ 
Islenzkir Tonar), 

At the end of 1960, the/e was a 
contest on the most popular artists 
and orchestras at Iceland. Male sing- 
ers were listed in the following order: 
Ragnar Bjarnason, Odinn Valdimars- 
son and Haukur Morthens. Female 
singers came in following order: Elly 
Vilhjalms, Helena Eyjolfsdottir and 
Sigrun Jonsdottir. Finally, the orches- 
tras listed were Svavar Gests Ork., 
The K. K. Sextet and The Atlantic 
Quartet. Of foreign artists, Elvis 
Presley is the most popular. Others 
who are selling very well in Iceland 
are Frank Sinatra, Neil Sedaka, Cliff 
Richard, and others. 

Radio in Iceland is non-commercial, 



Frederick C. Marks, Festival’s executive director, has announced the initial 
release in Australia — through Festival Records Pty. Ltd. — -of original record- 
ings by the American Am-Par Record Corporation and its new associate jazz 
label, Impulse, nationally on April 13. ABC-Paramount recordings will be re- 
leased in Australia on the Am-Par label and Impulse will retain its identity as 
in the United States. Am-Par initial releases will consist of five 12" LP albums 
featuring such artists as Paul Anka, Ray Charles, Montoya and Sabicas, The 
Lionel Newman Orchestra, Alfred Apaka and others. Impulse will feature cool 
jazz by artists such as The Kai Winding Trombones, The Gil Evans Orchestra, 
Ray Charles, J. J. Johnson and Kai Winding — all winners in the recent 1960 
Downbeat, Metronome and Playboy readers’ poll. Cover presentation will be 
exactly as produced in the United States with brilliant four-color jackets and 
in the case of Impulse, special deluxe double-fold color jackets. Releases will 
be available on mono and stereo at the same price. 

An interesting new single from Pye features charming Jaequi Chan with 
“But No One Knows” c/w “Gentlemen Please!” Chan is currently in Australia 
starring in “The World Of Suzie Wong,” which currently opened in Mel- 
bourne. 

Recently married Johnny Devlin is breaking through with his first single on 
the Festival label, “Charlie Mopps.” Johnny’s previous records were on the Teen 
label. Another newie on Festival is Jimmy Little’s “Shadow Of A Boomerang,” 
which is the title tune of a film made in Australia and financed by the Billy 
Graham Organization. The film deals with racial problems and Little has a 
prominent part in it. 

The EMI boys should be rubbing their hands together in joyful anticipation 
of the visits to this country in early April of two of their best-selling record- 
ing stars — Jimmy Shand and Kenneth McKellar. Shand is a fantastic disk- 
seller in Australia — he has never had a disk in the Top 40 in this country and 
yet it is safe to say that overall he outsells many Top 40 artists. McKellar is 
in the same boat to a lesser degree than Shand. As an indication of Shand’s 
tremendous popularity in Australia, EMI released some dozen albums, as many 
EP’s and countless singles of his material; they also have a whole flock of 
disks available by McKellar. 

First single by Bruce Gillespie under his agreement with W&G Records has 
just been released; it carries “Jenny, Oh Jenny” c/w “They Really Don’t Know 
You.” W&G has produced a special one-sided promotion disk of “Jenny, Oh 
Jenny,” which is the “A” side of the first single. 

RCA is up to their necks here in Elvis Presley records at the moment. “Are 
You Lonesome Tonight” is still making - some sales noise, “Wooden Heart,” now 
out on a single, is one of the hottest selling singles across the nation and now 
RCA has just released “Surrender” c/w “Lonely Man,” which is already on 
the way to the top sales spot, where it is likely to compete with “Wooden 
Heart.” In addition to the Presley singles, RCA is also hot in the album field 
with Presley via the soundtrack from “G.I. Blues.” Pye Records has made a 
rush release of “Blue Moon” by The Marcels. It was released here within one 
week of its appearance on The Cash Box charts for the first time. 

The industry in this country went for a long while with just a trickle of 
percussion albums, but the output has been stepped up now with current per- 
cussion issues coming from most major labels. Percussion records are strug- 
gling to break through the sales barrier in Australia, they are never likely to 
emulate their terrific American success. Even the top selling American percus- 
sion albums are finding the going tough here. General feeling is that the mu- 
sical content of the majority of percussion albums is too “sophisticated” to 
reach mass popularity in Australia. 

EMI has edited the local MGM release of Mark Dinning’s Top Forty, News, 
Weather And Sports” to eliminate the reference to the late Patrice Lumumba. 
The disk has just been released. 

Since Columbia (USA) Records took over control of Australian Record Com- j 
pany (Coronet and Warner Bros, labels) some time back firm has made sev- 
eral moves of major importance. When the Columbia influence first took effect 
some staff changes were made within ARC; the next move was to introduce 
a monthly release schedule; next, the ARC studios (in Sydney) and allied 
equipment were sold and now the latest move is the introduction of The Coro- 
net Record Club — as reported in The Cash Box last week.

and so far there has been no serious 
talks about changing to commercial 
radio. Nor is there any so called pi- 
rate radio stations operating outside 
the Icelandic territorial water. 

The leading Icelandic artists are 
now engaged at various dance restau- 
rants in Reykjavik. Lido, the most 
exclusive spot with a capacity of 600 
people, has Odinn Valdimarsson this 
month, while Elly Vilhjalms is at the 
Klubben, Helena Eyjolfsdottir at the 
Stork Klubben, Ragnar Bjarnason at 
the Sjaalfstaedishudid, Haukur Mor- 
thens at the Rodull, K. K. Sextet at 
the Porscafe, etc. 

According to Tage Ammendrup of 
Islenzkir Tonar, he is trying to book 
his artists for tours abroad during 
the summer season, being mainly in- 
terested in offers from other Scan- 
dinavian countries.

BULLSEYE 



“BEGGAR TO A KING” (2:45) [Starrite BMI— Richardson] 
“POOR LITTLE JIMMIE” (2:14) [Be-Are BMI— Wayne] 

t. 

HANK SNOW (RCA Victor 7869) 

Another big chart item should be coming Hank Snow’s way via “Beggar 
To A King.” Tune’s a delicate, slow waltz with a lyric of inspirational 
love that Hank delivers with stirring thoughtfulness. A beautiful, endear- 
ing message. Also to be considered for contention is the bright, cheerful 
teen love item tagged “Poor Little Jimmie.” 

Illlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll 


BILL PARSONS (Starday 544) 

(B+) “THE PRICE WE PAY FOR 
LIVIN’” (2:08) [Golden State 
BMI — Parsons, Cowens, Diehl] Par- 
sons works his way briskly through a 
romping, stomping ditty that’s part 
comedy, yet has a significant lyric 
message. The jet-speed rocker bear 
melodic traces to “There’ll Be No 
Teardrops Tonight.” A solid offering 
for country folk. 

(B) “A-WAITIN”’ (2:30) [Star- 
day BMI— Parsons] Another 
lively date with a comical outlook. 
This time, though, Parsons delivers 
the all-too-true message in a homey 
talk-sing manner. Two powerful is- 
sues. 


MOON MULLICAN (King 5473) 

(B) “ELL TAKE YOUR HAT 

RIGHT OFF MY RACK” 
(2:41) [14-K BMI — Hands, Nath] 

The old country vet is represented in 
a familiar easy-going, honky-tonk 
mood. Pleasant side that jocks’ll love 
for sentimental value. 

(B) “I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO 

DO” (2:42) [Lois BMI— 
Burns, Alley] Another item from the 
King vault posing the pianist-vocalist 
in an uptempo blue romantic. Again, 
memories deem this of importance. 


ESCO HANKINS/JACKIE 
(Sims 119) 

(C+) “GOD THREW AWAY THE 
PATTERN” (2:35) [R&R 
BMI — Hankins, Faulkner, Forte] A 
conventional country opus of endear- 
ing love is delivered in gripping hill- 
billy fashion by Hankins and Jackie. 
Lots of honest sincerity here. 

(C) “OH SO AFRAID” (2:20) 
[R&R BMI — Hankins, Faulk- 
ner, Forte] Hankins goes it alone on 
a blue-ballad story. Also for hillbilly 
markets. 


THE SOUTHERNAIRES (Pace 1017) 

(C+) “PROVEN HOPE” (2:59) 
[Clay— Lick BMI — Gammon] 
Gospel group melds in close harmony 
on a familiar country religious theme. 
A slow paced, heartwarming stanza. 

(C+) “THE ROCK” (2:48) [Clay— 
LUk BMI — Stubblefield] Cou- 
pler is a, jubilee spiritual that’s dis- 
played w-£h gospel fervor and deep 
sincerity. 


THE GOLDEN TONES (Lodestar 22- 
61) 

(C) “THE BLACKBOARD OF 

MY HEART” (2:58) [Texoma 
ASCAP — Gaston, Thompson] The old 
Hank Thompson hit is surveyed ama- 
teurishly by lead singer Roj. 

(C) “MISTER MOON” (2:51) 

[Peer Int’l BMI — Smith, In- 
man, Lyn] Another old country hit is 
again mistreated by group and lead 
vocalist. 


TOM TALL (Decca 31240) 

(B+) “OUR TIMING’S WRONG” 
[Sure Fire BMI — Perry] A 
soulful blue love statement is offered 
by the artist in an attractive, soft 
chorus-combo setting. A tender dis- 
play of affection. Can make a strong 
bid for stardom. 

(B+) “YOU CALL EVERYBODY 
DARLIN’” (1:55) [Mayfair 
ASCAP — Watts, Trace, Martin] Here, 
the oldie is surveyed with bright-beat 
cheerfulness. Artist has country 
knowhow and is bound to break out 
soon. 


CHUCK BENNIE (Cotton 103) 

(B) “TUMBLE DOWN HEART” 
(2:17) [Cottonbow BMI — Ben- 
nie, Hopkins] An amiable, likeable bit 
of country charm is packed into the 
bright, tuneful essay by Bennie. An 
enticing sound. 

(B) “LONELY DOVE” (2:40) 
[Cottonbow BMI — Bennie] A 
pretty instrumental theme is picked 
with tenderness. Has a flavorful 
romantic atmosphere that will serve 
as an interesting change-of-pace for 
programming. 


BILL RUSS (Eunice 1005) 

(B) “SAME PLACE, SAME 
GIRL” (1:48) [Faye BMI— 

Morse, West, Russ, Morse] Songster 
gets to the heart of this tender plain- 
tive. Taken at a brisk upbeat, it moves 
along at a feelingful clip. Good per- 
formance. 

(C) “MY LIFE FOR YOU” (2:10) 
[Faye BMI — Morse, West, 

Russ, Morse] Rambling stanza of 
blue romance is offered by the singer 
here. Too much echo used on both 
ends. 


MURRAY KELLUM— ALTON LOTT 
(K&M 501) 

(C+) “BRAND NEW BABY” 
(1:59) [Kellum] Kellum, Lott 
and the Ramblers join forces produc- 
ing a fairly interesting group sound 
on a conventional country item. Starts 
slow then builds to an exciting rock- 
accented finish. 

(C+) “LOVE WAGON” (2:30) 
[Kellum] Here Lott drops out 
and Kellum handles lead vocal chores 
on a pleasant, rolling-along stanza. 


RONNIE & CALVIN (Pace 1016) 

(C+) “HEAVEN” (2:46) [Manna 
BMI — McSpadden] The pair 
form a solid harmonic duet and de- 
liver this country gospel side in stir- 
ring terms. Fine performance for the 
gospel market. 

(C+) “THEN I MET THE MAS- 
TER” (2:41) [Lister SESAC 
— Lister] Another slow, stirring ex- 
cursion into a meaningful religious 
song. Good sides here.

Recording activity at Starday Sound Studios has been heavy with recent al- 
bum sessions by the Willis Brothers, Jimmy Richardson, Paul Wayne, Bill 
Clifton, Lonzo & Oscar and Whitey Ford — The Duke of Paducah. The Duke of 
Paducah session was a comedy-party routine that is being rushed into produc- 
tion for early May release under the title of “Button Shoes, Belly Laughs and 
Monkey Business. To achieve a true night club atmosphere for the recording, 
Don Pierce invited a studio-full of prominent Nashvillians for a reception and 
party honoring the comedian and then all stayed around to hear him perform. 
The crowd’s laughter and applause was captured for the disk to give it a 
nitery feeling. Tommy Hill engineered the session. . . . Jack Howard up to 
The Cash Box office last week to tell us of the signing of Jesse Rogers to How- 
ard’s Arcade label (Philadelphia). Rogers was a featured performer on the 




PORTER WAGONER 


PATSY CLINE 



JOHNNY CASH 


now-defunct ABC network show, “Hayloft Hoedown,” and has recorded for 
both the MGM and RCA Victor labels. He’s also credited with one of the top 
recordings of “Blue Christmas.” Rogers’ first Arcadia release, due out April 15, 
couples “Night Wind” with “Say It Again.” . . . Rudy Thacker is going full 
blast with his Dennison Theatre in Cleveland. Booking exclusively through 
Herb Schucher, Rudy has had Kitty Wells and Johnny & Jack (Mar. 18) and 
the Louvin Brothers (Mar. 25). Part of the evening proceedings are broadcast 
over WADC-Akron. . . . Cowboy Howard Vokes and his Country Boys keeping 
extra busy these days by putting in 4 hours each Thurs. and Sat. in p.a.’s at 
Sammy Frank’s Furniture Co., New Kensington, Pa. Though it’s tough to keep 
up the sked, Vokes says he and the boys are encouraged by the fine twice- 
weekly turnout. 

The new LP due from Mercury April 15th tagged “Guitar’s Greatest Hits” 
performed by Tom & Jerry is getting tremendous advance buildup. Reason is 
that the performers are Tommy Tomlinson and Jerry Kennedy. Incidentally, 
though Tommy is still confined to bed he’s playing an important part in pick- 
ing and arranging material for Claude King’s first Columbia session. . . . Till- 
man Franks notes that Billy Jean Horton is currently occupied with dramatic 
lessons and preparations for another single release. . . . The Johnny Cash Show 
hit the road April 3rd for two weeks of dates in Canada. With Johnny, on the 
bill are Bob Luman, Buck Owens, Rose Maddox, Gordon Terry, the Tennessee 
Two and Roy Nichols and his band. The show opened April 3rd in Saskatoon, 
and from there (on consecutive dates through the 14th) plays Edmonton, Re- 
gina, Moose Jaw, Yorkton, Winnipeg, Brandon, Calgary, Red Deer and Van- 
couver, B.C. Breaking up the middle are a Des Moines, Iowa, date the ninth 
and a free day the tenth. . . . Elroy Face, the famed Pittsburgh Pirate relief 
ace and last year’s World Series hero, making the country disk scene via 
“Cross Your Heart With Love” on the Robbee label. The boy’s probably look- 
ing for security when his arm gives out. . . . Jacksonville, Florida will be the 
scene of gala country doings April 22nd, when radio station WQIK presents its 
first annual Country Music Festival by bringing in fifteen top “Opry” stars 
for a tremendous show. Appearing will be Faron Young, Porter Wagoner, Les- 
ter Flatt & Earl Scruggs, Cowboy Copas, Roy Drusky, Bob Gallion, George 
Hamilton IV, the Louvin Brothers, Mel Tillis, Patsy Cline, Darrell McCall and 
Curley Harris. In addition, those that show up will witness a hog calling con- 
test and a championship fiddlin’ contest. The city’s new Coliseum, with a seat- 
ing capacity of 13,000 will play host for the evening. Marshall Rowland of 
WQIK expects a capacity, turn-away crowd. We wish them all the luck in the 
world for what can turn out to be a fine yearly event. 

The Carlisles have been set by Joe Wright to work a tour of Texas, Okla., 
New Mexico and Arizona this month. Miss Bobbie Sills is the new addition to 
the group, replacing sister Dottie who worked with the group since 1954. . . . 
Also, Joe Wright has negotiated a tour of military bases in the southeast for 
Dick Flood. Upon Dick’s return he will do nine days in the midwest for Hap 
Peebles. We’ve heard that Warner Bros. Pictures is interested in Dick and the 
lad is seriously considering their offer. . . . Autry Inman is now a Wrig-ht ex- 
clusive, working all bookings through that agency. He’s currently working on 
his United Artists single, “I’ve Got Farther To Go Than I’ve Been.” . . . Rex 
Allen signed with the State of California to star in the annual Rodeo Show held 
in Redwood Acres, Eureka, Calif., June 24-25. . . . We’re told that radio station 
CFOX-Montreal is the only Canadian station in the area that regularly broad- 
casts country music. Mel Brownie, the station’s librarian, informs us that there 
are one-and-a-half hours of the stuff daily and that new disks are needed. . . . 
Also in dire need of good country records is WLOE-Leaksville, North Carolina, 
which has just extended its country music schedule to include a six-day show. 
Ernest Wright at the station pens that they just don’t have enough records to 
fill the time properly. . . . Hank Snow planning a big Canadian tour in June 
with Montana Slim (Wilf Carter). Right now, Hank’s concentrating on getting 
plays for his just-released Victor single, “Beggar To A King” b/w “Poor Lit- 
tle Jimmie.” From the sound of it, Hank won’t have to work too hard to get it 
played. . . . Following his dates with Johnny Cash through the middle of April, 
Roy Drusky takes off for a couple of weeks in Hawaii. . . . Tom Reeder, who 
plays six hours of country music a day as well as managing WYAL-Scotland 
Neck, N. Carolina, infos that they’ve got two new jockeys there — Mike Faulk- 
ner and Garry Joyner, and both boys need records.

An Important Outlet 

THE 

EXPORT 

MARKET 


'I here are almost as many differences of opinion 
concerning the coin machine export market as 
there are wholesalers. Some of the more progres- 
sive distribution outlets have enjoyed a better than 
average business from sales to foreign buyers while 
others claim to have lost income on the venture. 

There are also sellers who specialize and others 
who handle the export sale as strictly a sideline. Cer- 
tain jobbers are willing to pick up an order when 
the proposition practically writes itself and then 
there’s the eastern distributor who made it his busi- 
ness to call on an inconsequential European firm 
during a trip abroad “rather than completely over- 
look the potential.” The importance of the export 
market to the American wholesaler is almost a mat- 
ter of semantics. Export means different things to 
different people. 

To some wholesalers the market is seen as a far- 
off dumping ground for junk. To another, the word 
‘export’ on a crate calls for a double-check to be 
certain everything is in order, for a machine that is 
faulty is nothing more than a direct turndown of 
whatever future business may have been forthcom- 
ing. 

Regardless of personal opinion, the fact remains 
that in 1960 more than $21 million in coin-operated 
equipment left American shores for foreign ports 
and that in itself points up the importance of this 
market. For in this day and age in our industry 
when wholesalers would be wise to utilize every 
known facet of doing business, the export market 
takes on even greater importance. Many still dis- 
claim the foreign market, possibly due to personal 
misfortunes, by stating that the market is saturated. 
Others point to the increasingly stringent price 
structures within which a seller must operate. And 
of course, a particular type game is always losing its 
attractiveness in certain areas. These are probably 
all valid arguments when looked at from a personal 
point of view. No one wishes to condemn a profit- 
able segment of the industry. 

However, we can only look to 1966’§ total volume 
and more specifically, to the last three months of 
the year, when December is practically lost to the 
European buyer due to Christinas festivities which, 
we are told, occupy several weeks of the month. Al- 
most $6 million was shipped in equipment during 
this final quarter and Europe was responsible for 
more than $4 million of the total. Moreover, 1960’s 
$21 million was about $2 million over the 1959 
figure. 

Many successful exporters state that their bulk 
is placed with a small handful of buyers. “They take 
all the machines I can ship,” is a common phrase 
heard in these quarters. Perhaps it would he to the 
noil-exporter’s advantage to seek out several pros- 
pects after honestly reviewing the export market 
and its requirements. After shipping the first ‘re- 
order’ this market will suddenly take on great im- 
portance.

‘ SEEBUR6 NAMES 
ADVANCE AUTO. 
IN SAN FRANCISCO 



LOU WOLCHER 

CHICAGO — The Seeburg Sales Cor- 
poration last week appointed Advance 
Automatic Sales Company, located at 
1350 Howard Street in San Francisco, 
California to handle distribution for 
the Seeburg coin-operated phonograph 
and vending machine lines throughout 
all of northern California. 

The appointment of Advance Auto- 
matic Sales was aimed by Seeburg 
Sales Corporation to offset the recent 
acquisition of the R. F. Jones Com- 
pany distributorship by Automatic 
Canteen Company of America. R. F. 
Jones Co., formerly handled distribu- 
tion for Seeburg throughout a wide 
area along the west coastal region of 
the country. 

Advance Automatic Sales is headed 
by Lou Wolcher, a veteran of many 
years in the distributive end of the 
coin machine industry. Other mem- 
bers of Wolcher’s staff includes J. D. 
Cox, Robert (Bob) Portale and Ed 
Heinle in the sales department. An- 
drew Diamond heads the parts depart- 
ment, and Ed Stimson manages Auto- 
matic Sales’ service department. 


Briggs Sees Copyright 
Appeal Most Important 
PDA Action In 1960 

LONDON, ENGLAND — Bernard 
Briggs, chairman of the Phonograph 
Operators Association, spoke before 
the association at the annual meet- 
| ing last month and listed the trade 
organization’s appeal to the Perform- 
ing Rights Tribunal as the most im- 
portant action of the past business 
year. Talking before the operator as- 
sociation, Briggs pointed to the ap- 
, peal as an all-important move by the 
coin machine group and although the 
result was negative insofar as license 
fees are concerned (the British oper- 
|j ator must continue to pay a perform- 
ance fee for the use of records on his 
machines), it did place the issue on 
its proper level. The Tribunal (court) 
refused to grant the Performance 
Rights Society any costs in spite of a 
strong plea by counsel. P.O.A. thereby 
was established as the recognized 
leader and spokesman for the music 
operators as a duly authenticated rep- 
resentative of the operator. 

Fees from operators have also been 
stabilized for at least one year and, 
according to Briggs, probably much

forming Rights Society is “a monop- 
oly” and “monopolies are notorious 
for their insatiable appetites.” 

The Tribunal made it quite clear 
however that it agreed only to the 
present rates (the Society wanted an 
increase), in the absence of evidence 
showing a decline in trading condi- 
tions.

ment Machine Distributors Pty. Ltd., 
'East Sydney, Australia, local AMI dis- 
tributors here, hosted a showing of 
the AMI phonograph line from March 
j 6 to 10 at the Chevron Hilton Hotel 
in conjunction with an industrial show. 

The firm displayed its complete line 
of equipment which included the AMI 


‘Continental’ and ‘Lyric’ phonographs.

hotel showing are, from left to right, 
R. L. Davidson; Miss Y. Durward,

Bally Puts 'Barrel-O’ -Fun' Bingo 
In New Cabinet — Reschedules 


Production To Meet Op Demands 



I CHICAGO — The new 1961 model 
j “Barrel-O-Fun” will start coming off 
. the production line this week, accord- 
ing to an announcement by Bill 
O’Donnell, general sales manager of 
Bally Manufacturing Company, this 
1 city. 

“Our decision to go back into pro- 
duction on ‘Barrel-O-Fun’,” O’Donnell 
said “was based on the continued 
strong demand for the game, which 
in some areas actually rivals the more 
elaborate bingo games in earning 
power.” ‘Barrel-0 ’-Fun’ ’61 is the 
same as the original ‘Barrel-O-Fun’ in 
, action, scoring and play-appeal — com- 
| bining high-scores with bingo or light- 
a-line scoring. The new game, how- 
ever, is housed in a new type high 
styled cabinet which has won praise 
[ from all who have previewed the 
I'ame. 

“Although play is limited to a max- 


imum of 6 coins per game — to select 
6 cards — the performance of the orig- 
inal ‘Barrel-O’-Fun’ is ample proof of 
the high earning power operators can 
expect. 

Non-replay model is ‘Fun-Spot ’61’. 
Both models — ‘Barrel-O-Fun ’61’ and 
‘Fun-Spot ’61’ — are equipped with the 
popular Auto-Mission Coin-Divider. 


PITTSBURGH SITE OF 
NAMA CONFERENCE 
APRIL 14 and 15 

PITTSBURGH — Plans have been set 
for a mid-central sectional conference 
meet here to be conducted under the 
auspices of the National Automatic 
Merchandising Association, April 14 
and 15. The Pittsburgh Hilton Hotel 
will house the vendors during the 2- 
day meeting which is expected to in- 
terest small and large operators alike. 

There will be no charge for NAMA 
members, nor will members of the 
Ohio Automatic Merchandising Asso- 
ciation, or the New York Auto- 
matic Vending Association be ex- 
pected to pay. Most New York ops, 
however, will attend the eastern con- 
ference expected to be held in Atlantic 
City, May 26 and 27. 

The conference will include discus- 
sions on employer-employee relations; 
practical workshops including mainte- 
nance and repair; how-to-do-it layout 
planning; and general talks by guest 
speakers. 

Sectional conferences are scheduled 
for the following cities during the 
first half of this year: Boston, April 
28 and 29; Chicago, May 12 and 13; 
Atlantic City, May 26 and 27; and 
San Francisco, June 9 and 10.

Univ. Match Head Points 
To Bright Spots For 1961 

ST. LOUIS, MO.— John L. Wilson, 
president, Universal Match Corpora- 
tion, this city, in a report to stock- 
holders, pointed to several bright pros- 
pects for increased earnings during 
1961. 

“Our new product developments are 
beginning to reach the marketplace. 
The coin and paper currency changer 
should contribute to earnings in 1961, 
in addition to absorbing a portion of 
the research and development cost in- 
curred in 1960. New vending lines are 
being introduced by both National 
Vendors and Glasco Corporation, in- 
cluding a uniform line of vending 
equipment and a pre-mix soft drink 
vendor with an ice-maker that sup- 
plies bite-size cubes in the cup. 

“Unipark, the device which auto- 
matically computes, records, and dis- 
plays parking charges, will be in pro- 
duction this spring. American Air 
Curtain sales are improving, and 1961 
volume is expected to more than dou- 
ble 1960.

ANALYSIS OF I960 ANNUAL COIN 
MACHINE EXPORT VOLUME REPORT 

A iemm of Coin Machine Saks 
To The World's Markets is 1960 

GENERAL Any year in which a business can show an increase of $2 1/2 m illion over a previous $19 mil- 
lion has to be a good year. That ' s the way 1960 went for exporters of coin machines to a 
record number of foreign countries last year. Close to 60 nations bought $10.5 million 
in ph onographs , $7.6 million in amusement games and $5.4 m illion worth of vending equip- 
ment. The total figure was $21,581,194 as prepared and reported for The Cash Box by the 
US Dept, of Commerce. West German y remained at t he top of the heap taking almost twice 
as many phonos as the next in line ( Belgium) and coming close to the million dollar mark 
in games imports. The United Kingdom served up an interesting annual figure for games 
with a record shattering $2.8 million, buying more than 13 thousand games during 1960. 

However, even a general estimate indicated strong showings in the fruit machine depart- ~,j 

ment which, of course, is nowhere near as healthy a sign as Germany' s gam e f igure , or 
Belgium who actually ranked number one since the import total in this country was based 
on shuffles, pins, bingos and arcade equipment, rather than the UK fruits which bloated 
the annual total. Newcomers to the ranks of the importers included Finland , and Austria 
who did some business , with Austria starting earlier in the year with a small shipment of 
phonos and growing to a year end figure of $10 thousand. Finland bought one dozen phonos 
during the last quarter and just about matched its neighbor. While these totals were 
small the purchases could be the start of something big. Australia kept many an ex- 
porter busy last year, rackin g up $1 million in all types of equipment after a restricted 
year in 1959. Again, as in the UK although games were responsible for about half of this 
total and the fruits were going into the Aussie country too. Africa, with all of its 
troubles , managed to com e close to the $100 thousand mark showing an interest for arcade 
equipment in and around the Johannesburg area. Speaking of arcades, Japan is taking 
arcade ma chines as well as general games, for arcade operations springing up in Tokyo 
and the surrounding areas. A bright note here again is a new market with a small beginning 
but a powerful potential. While Mexico was not buying in August and September, after a 
July purchase of $157,000, the Central American port took e nough mac hines during the 
balance of th e year to show a respectable $225 , 485 i.n phonos taking second p lace honors 
in the North-Central American hemisphere. Since games will usually follow on the 
success of music, Mexico held true to form and bought m ore than $100 thousand in amuse- 
ment games , more than some of the stronger nations in Europe. Phonos droppe d in volume 
durin g the third quarter of '60, but the final t hree months pulled the figures up to bring 
them in over the previous year. G ames grew in volum e with each passing quarter however, 
and the picture at the end of 1960 was better than it had been and that's a better than 
fair start for '61. 

PHONOS The tastes of Europe and elsewhere grew accustomed to better equipment and later models 
during 1960 but the price became a factor. Naturally, the quality machines won out and 
the bargain hunters looked elsewhere for machines. Other troubles reared ugly heads 
throughout the world with conflict in Africa , n ationwide strikes in Belgium with the 
outlying countries slowing down in sympathy and even our own ports in New York dropping 
everything for a wage increase. But business wasn't hurt too badly with much of the 
European strike business coming during the holidays when a slowdown is expected anyway. 

Actually, Belgium passed the $2 mi llio n mark in p honos and with new arcades opening up 
the country expects to do even better this year. Venezuela came bac k into the fold taking 
$366 thousand in phonos from us. They almost equalled this figure in the games depart- 
ment. The United Kingdom, however, while taking in innumerable fruit machines did 
corne r th e marke t on about $700 thousand worth of phonos , with 1116 machines shipped. 

Japa n can be expected to take m ore p honos now with some steam being applied to a coin 
machine industry over there. A ustrali a as noted mana ged a neat $ 388 thousand in phonos 
and they were one of the several bright spots in the 1960 phono report. 

GAMES $7.6 million in amusement machines shipped to foreign ports has to be felt somewhere and 
of course the supply is growing thin here in the US. Demands for specific machines and 
models are more the case rather than the exception and exporters here can be found on 
almost any given day scurrying around buying up lots to fill orders. With England 
promoting the bowling b usines s , and Switzerland too, many vac ancie s f or shuffles and 
bowlers can be found with the growing appeal of this participant sport. France has been * 

publicized in this trade publication with i nstallations of up to fifteen and twenty 
bowlers in brand new establishments. The country bought $512 thousand worth of amuse- 
men t gam es last year and this may be only the the beginning. As mentioned before the 
growin g arcade s throughou t t he world are taking e quipment almost as fast as US exporters 
can clean it up. The problem of course is price and this too must be settled. The estab- 
lished importers of quality equipment have found that the volume business isn't neces- 
sarily the road to profit. An arrangement with a small number of buyers of games, for 
instance, pays off in re-orders while a wide array of ' shoppers ' merely increase the 
exporte r ' s v olume at a higher cost of doing business . Lebanon bought $174 thousand in 
games leading all of Asia whose total almost reached one-half million. Actually, the 
Asian country's volume dropped off after a strong beginning during the first six months 
of the year. But Europe's Belgium re m ained t he big buyer of the shuffles and bingos 
with a resounding $917 t housan d and it was here and in West Germany in Europe, Mexico 
in Central America, and Venezuela in So. America that the bulk of the games business in t 

1961 was expected to be carried on. 

VENDING As usual the volume may or may not have been deceiving with the government officials 
MACHINES classifyin g a peanut mac hine and a c offee m achine in the sam e breath. But with West 
Germany registering an averag e cost p er m achine of more than ^400 there was no doubt 
that here was an importer of industrial vending equipment. Israel ' s comparatively small 
purchase of 50 machines at $5 thousand definitely was not of the ball-gum variety and 
the sole machine shipped into Union of So. Africa at a cost of $1,060 was more than likely 
a top flight vendor. The total v ending figur e reached $5.4 million however, and this of 
course will grow as the vending business grows.

Holzman advised last week that 
the donations were “rolling in” hot

as an adjunct of the regular drive 


and the donations in this area need

Plans for the UJA affair’s Victory Dinner are really growing in leaps and 
bounds. Irv Holzman’s picture is all over coinrow with announcement copy op 
the contribution and dinner program while Irv tells us Harry Siskind is calling j 
“every five minutes” with more and more donations. Siskind is batting l.UUU. , 
stated Holzman after receiving still another phone call. Irv has the honor o 
the presence of Joseph Carlino, Speaker of the House, as guest speaker the 
nite of the affair. The Plaza Hotel will offer a strong entertainment program 
too, with Columbia’s Leslie Uggams, bright new song sensation, already signe 
to do the show. A number one monologist told Holzman he d crawl over to the j 
affair and do his bit” if he does not have to work out-of-town the eve ot the 
affair, Wed., May 3rd. Sure sounds like a real blowout.

Here’s a story that could happen only once in a lifetime and makes for. 
solid TV and movie comedy fare. The well-known Ted Seidel, better known as 
the ‘Champ’ along coinrow, heard that Tony Cantonese, Rockland s vet coin- 
man, was laid up in the Columbia Presbyterian Center with an illness. lony * 
been up there for a few months and he has been visited by many coinmen but 
none put on a show such as the likes of the one staged by the Champ last 
week. When Ted dropped by to visit with Tony, he brought along a ukelele. 
This uke, together with some potent juice from the good ole grape, livened 
things up in Tony’s room and before long the nurses were dancing in the 
aisles! The party lasted at least one hour and the medicos claimed it did: 
Cantonese more good than a boatload of drugs! 


Jack Wilson, president of the NYS Guild, has another triumph to chalk up. 
His kids did it again — Lucile-Clare Wilson, that is. She won the Micro-Midget 
main event on Saturday, March 18 at the Peekskill Armory and guess who she 
beat. Her brother, Jackie! Lucile is just 11 years of age. The kids race all over- 
state under the supervision of their proud dad. 


Tom Greco, Greco Bros. Amusement, in town, after driving down from 
Glasco where Tom tells us the Rock-Ola line is selling up a storm. Business 
has picked up real good, according to Greco, and the operating biz is doing > 
fine, too. 


Service schools are really drawing ’em in these days. Here’s a partial list : 
of the ops who attended the Runyon-Hartford Bally school two weeks ago) | 
Ralph Persico, Bob Grabardi, George Grosch, Dom Sainzo, Del Chronkite, Abe 
and Max Fish, Ted Zdonezyk, Mike Verbikas, M. Black, B. J. Onofrio, Charles 
Pragluski, Bill Bauman, Phil Tolisano, Mark, Joe Fornia, Max Putterman, 
Charles Harrington, Tom and Gene, Ed Hanko, Lew Northrop, Alex Rich, Mr. 
Daniels, and many, many others (whose names we just can’t make out from ' 
the signed register list!). 


Sam Taran, Taran Distributing, Miami, is going through an avyfully trying 
period these days what with marriages, weddings, bachelor parties, etc., etc. 
Sam’s son, Barry, who was at last year’s MOA show with Sam, and who man- 
ages the Miami outlet for his dad, was married on Sun., March 26th, but not | 
until much confusion and chaos which is part of any wedding preparation was 
done with. And according to Sam, “we’re lucky we managed to do business 
during the last two or three weeks with all the confusion!” That’s nothing. 
Wait until number two son, Bobby, walks up the aisle in June, Sam! 


Hank Peteet, Wurlitzer field engineer, into New York for. the Easter holi- 
days after touring all of the eastern seaboard. . . . Abe Lipsky and Harry' 
Koeppel, Libra Distribs, expect to have some good selling weeks during April j 
and May what with a load of good music available. . . . Lou Rosenberg, form®)] I 
operator, back on the avenue again, but this time as a manufacturer’s repre- 
sentative and he’s out of the coin business entirely. , 


Joe Munves, Mike Munves Corp., in the New England area earlier in the 
week and then into New York for a short stay with Mike in the NYC office. 
Mike advised that the sales to arcades this year couldn’t be better. “I wish we 
could get the equipment ready faster, just to fill the orders!” The helicopter 
kiddie rides have taken off, according to Munves. Good attractions with spring 
and all. 


There’s nothing wrong with the games business that Irv Holzman can seeh 
He’s selling United “Line-Up” and “Dixie” games as fast as they come in. 
Keepin’ Whitey and Lou Druckman and the crew on their toes! 


A1 Simon, lunching with A1 D’lnzillo, discusses the current used equipment 
business and finds that good late model games are in demand more than ever. 
A1 D. tells us that the Rock-Ola wall phono “100” job is spurring sales on tlm 
entire phono line. Meanwhile, the Auto-Photos just keep rollin’ along. 


Barney Sugerman, Runyon Sales, back in the swing of things after staying 
in town for about two weeks having returned from a Hot Springs jaunt and 
rest. Morris Rood busy with the Bally and AMI lines while introducing the 
Rowe cig machine to cigarette ops calling and driving in. Myron Sugerman is 
very happy over the current export volume leaving Runyon’s Newark plant. - 
“Equipment is very difficult to locate though” quotes Myron. “Kempy” Kemp- 
ner has kept busy traveling the upstate area attending service schools asd 
ops’ offices, in fact anywhere an operator might be. He’s one sales rep that’s 
never hard to find. Lou Wolberg disappointed in the Patterson-Ingo fite films. 
“They’re both bums,” stated Lou. And he ought to know after a lifetime of 
watching the fights. 


Meyer Parkoff, Atlantic NY Corp., has another winner on his hands — the 
Seeburg Crushed Ice Drink Machine. “We’ve shipped quite a few for test 
purposes and already the re-orders are coming in,” said Murray Kaye. “So I 
guess all that’s being said about the machine is true. We’ve got a winner.” 
The Seeburg ‘Artist of the Week’ promotion is still keeping ops on their toes 
programming LP material and moving the selections from one machine to the 
other. 


Talk about export biz! Vic Haim, R. H. Belam Co., is busy selling every 
foreign port in the world. Haim handles most of the top wholesalers in the 
country and does a fine job, too! 


SURPRISE VISITOR in town. Lou Boasberg, New Orleans Novelty, in 
to see old friends and do the town with his family. Lou’s wife and three kids 
will catch the Jack Paar show while in town and enjoy New York in general 
at Eastertime. 


The Cash Box — April 8, 1961 


* 



CHICAGO CHATTER 


As coinman everywhere in the U.S.A. reach hands across the sea to greet 
T their friends in many foreign lands during the reading of this fourth Quarterly 
Export Edition of The Cash Box there is great satisfaction here about the 
growing upward trend in business conditions now that the “bottoming out” pe- 
riod is passing. This optimistic approach to coinbiz will, the experts say, give 
coinmen in all domestic and foreign markets much heart in ther relationship 
with their customers. It is interesting to note that more and more coinmen 
everyday are making that long overseas trek to call on the European trade, 
and, of course, to other continents. Coinbiz is certainly growing — rather than 
retarding. 

The Amusements Division of the Combined Jewish Appeal of Chicago held 
an impromptu executive meeting Thursday, March 23, at Fritzel’s to discuss 
the program for the April 25 luncheon and fund raising drive. Among those 
in attendance were: Lennie Garmisa, president for 1961, Mercury’s Irving 
Green, last year’s prexy; Herb Oettinger, chairman of the Coin Machine divi- 
sion; Empire Coin’s Joe Robbins, chairman of the Bowling Division; Aaron 
Cushman, chairman of the Public Relations group; Marty Faye, chairman of 
the Radio and TV division; and vice chairmen Morrie Goldman, Eddie Yalo- 
* witz, Jack Solinger, Lee Brooks of The Cash Box, and Bill Veeck, prexy of the 
Chicago White Sox baseball club. The genial, irrepressible Veeck graced the 


DELBERT COLEMAN 

podium and plunged helter skelter into the hard working committee’s activities. 
^Bill (he of the exploding, unpredictable — pinball type baseball scoreboard — 
complete with “tilt”) as usual, tried to solve the CJA financial problems sin- 
. glehandedly. He’s working hard at it with the capable assistance of his part- 
ner Aaron Cushman. 

MOA’s managing director and long time coinbiz vet Ed Ratajack passes 
along the welcome news that music operators in every state of the union — 
including the new states of Hawaii and Alaska — are now represented in the 
Music Operators of America Association. “Operators everywhere now stress 
the urgent need of a unified voice for the coin machine industry,” Ratajack de- 
clared. George A. Miller, MOA president, exulted in the accomplishment of his 
^greatest wish, when he remarked, “the recent increase in nw membership cer- 
tainly ties in wth the fact that our big May convention is almost sold out, and 
gives me a feeling of personal pride.” 

Bally general sales manager Bill O’Donnell advised last week that Bally’s 
1961 model “Barrel-O’-Fun” has been released to the trade and shipping has 
already resumed at the Bally plant, due to the great demand from operators 
in most areas. The non-replay model is the ’61 version of “Fun-Spot.” Both 
models are equipped with the popular Auto-Mission coin divider. . . . Happy 
Easter greetings emanated last week from the offices of Chicago Dynamic In- 
dustries to the firm’s coin machine friends everywhere in the world. ChiCoin 
greeters include prexy Sam Wolberg, Sam Gensburg, Jerry Koci, Art Weinand, 
Mort Secore, Harry Glick, Avron Gensburg, and a host of other ChiCoinites. 
Meanwhile, Aid; returned to the business at hand when he info’d that Chicago 
Coin’s big, beautiful “Princess” bowler is proving to be a sensation in loca- 
tions.

DETROIT BRANCH: 7743 PURITAN AVE. (TEL: Diamond 1-5800) 


Exciting news continues to pop from the offices of Delbert Coleman, presi- 
dent of the Seeburg Corp., and from Tom Herrick’s desk. The new report an- 
nounces the appointment of Lou Wolcher’s Advance Automatic Sales to handle 
Seeburg’s distribution in the San Francisco area. Lou’s staff includes Bob 
Portale, J. D. Cox, Ed Heinle, Andy Diamond and Ed Stimson. Seeburg’s 
“Pres” Struve formed a distributing firm to handle Seeburg equipment in Salt 
Lake City, Utah. . 

Hymie and Eddie Zorinsky, H-Z Vending & Sales in Omaha, report that busi- 
ness in the Nebraska confines is rolling along nicely. The approach of Spring 
heralds a welcome respite around Omaha from the recent big snows which 
happily melted away. Now operators are visiting at the firm’s showrooms. 


Joe Robbins informs us that business is booming at Empire Coin with the 
Wurlitzer phono line. The amusement games distribution is also rolling along, 
►according to Empire Coin owner Gil Kitt. Bob Wiley’s Detroit branch of Em- 
pire is currently in the process of setting up for the recently acquired Roek- 
Ola line of “Regis” phonos. Sales reps. Jack Burns and Bill Herbord are hit- 
ting the road to call on Empire’s operator friends. . . . Sam Stern, prexy of 
Williams Electronic Mfg., reports mounting sales with Williams’ newest pin- 
game sensation “Highways.” He hints of exciting plans at Williams Electonic 
for this Spring season. 

Paul Huebsch, vice president of J. H. Keeney & Co., is mopping his brow 
,now that everything is “peaches and cream” in the Huebsch household. He and 
his lovely Rosemary had their hands full with sieges of illness recently. Little 
Mary Virginia (Ginny) Huebsch just recovered from pneumonia, and Johnny 
Huebsch (the reddest head of all) is presently shrugging off a case of chicken- 
pox. However, all is well now, and Keeney’s new “Flash Back” electronic up- 
right amusement game is enjoying immediate fine sales reaction everywhere, 
according to Paul. . . United Mfg’s. sales chief Bill DeSelm tells us all roads 
(among visitors) are now leading to United’s new showroom where the great, 
new “DeLuxe Bowl-A-Rama” is holding forth in all its glory. 

Reports about the fine reception in all markets of D. Gottlieb & Co.’s ex- 
citing, new “Show Boat” pinball amusement game are pouring in from every- 
; where. Mort Levinson of National Coin Machine Exchange, Gottlieb’s distrib in 
this area, tells us advance orders staggered him. Alvin Gottlieb, Judd Wein- 
berg and sales chief Nate Gottlieb are getting similar reports across their 
desks daily. Judd is particularly delighted over the recent increase in sales in 
foreign markets. . . . Rock-Ola Mfg’s. Kurt Kluever advises that exec veepee 

I Edward G. Doris expects to return for the Easter Holiday from a two-week so- 
journ along the east coast with Rock-Ola’s eastern manager Bob Papineau. 
‘Sales director Frank Mitchell is currently touring the deep southland. Les 
Rieck is back in his office from a midwestern jaunt covering Kansas, the Da- 
kotas and Nebraska as well. He spent the rest of the week helping Donan Dis- 
tribs set up their “Regis” phono program. 

Oof — we goofed! Bud Wilbur of the Martinmaas Co., producers of the ex- 
citing, new “Fast Draw” game, was erroneously given the first name “Ted” in 
a recent Cash Box item. We now return his correct name to him in this column 
with our compliments. ... No man of mystery hereabouts is RCA’s Stan Pat, 
who manages to spend some of his time with music operators as well as along 
record row. Stan delights in seeing RCA 33 & 45 R.P.M. records in coin- 
operated phonos. . . . James (Jay) Albrent, ex-coinman turned record promo 
man, drops us a note asking to relay his regards to Empire Coin’s Joe Robbins. 
Jay now makes the rounds here for Jack Solinger’s Music Distribs. 

The Cash Box — April 8, 1961 


Atlas Music’s Harold Schwartz tells us the initial session of the AMI-Rowe 
distrib’s cigarette machine school Mar. 22 was a roaring success. Eddie Gins- 
burg hosted the set, and he was ably flanked by Nate Feinstein, Harold, Mike 
Spagnola, Mort Jacobs, Manuel Herman and Ray Grier. Atlas Music’s first 
AMI phono session was slated for Mar. 29. A regular every-other- Wednesday 
school schedule is being set for both cigarette and music equipment. . . . 
Clarence Schuyler, prexy of Games, Inc., advises that he looks to a very 
healthy Spring sales period with Games’ popular “Twin Trail Blazer” elec- 
tronic upright amusement game. 

Thomas Coulter, director of the Chicago Assn, of Commerce & Industry, an- 
nounced the appointment of George M. Kroloff to press relations man for the 
1961 Chicago International Trade Fair. ... A coin-operated dry cleaning in- 
stallation opened in Chi last week. The store is equipepd with 16 Norge dry 
cleaning units which clean 8 pounds of clothing for $1.50. Two more such 
locations are in the offing here, according to Richard Goldberg, president of 
Federal Equipment Co., local distributor of the Norge equipment. Twenty 
more locations are in the planning stage here. . . . Wico Corp’s. Ed Ruber has 
been in town for the past few weeks. This is a strange feeling for Ed since 
he has been hopping all over the country and in many foreign lands for quite 
a while. Sales chief Milt Wiczer and Morrie Wiczer are overjoyed over con- 
tinuing excellent sales results with Wico’s extensive parts line. Ed’s main proj- 
ect as of now is brainstorming the 1962 catalog. 

Marvel Mfg’s. prexy, Ted Rubey, and Estelle Bye look to the post-Easter 
season to show a decided increase in sales, although, they admit, there’s been 
no reason for complaint. Production of both the replacement plastics parts line 
for phonos and Marvel’s “Lucky Horoscope” machine have appreciably in- 
creased over the past few months. 

The offices and showrooms at World Wide Distribs are a beehive of activity 
since Joel Stern added the Seeburg line to his already extensive equipment 
lines. Joel, Fred Skor and Howie Freer are busy as beavers while sales chief 
Len Micon is enjoying the baths at Hot Springs, Arkansas (we still say he 
must have taken his golf clubs along!). . . . First Coin’s prexy Joe Kline, Sam 
Kolber and Freddie Kline have been at the long distance telephones steadily of 
late trying to latch on to good used amusement and music equipment for for- 
eign shipments. Joe tells us the flow of traffic on the floor has increased con- 
siderably since the nice weather set in. . . . Don Moloney and Mac Brier, 
Donan Distribs, are busy these days setting up distribution for the Rock-Ola 
“Regis” line of phonos.

Cleveland Coin's Export Sales Now At One-Third 
Of Firm 's Volume With Growth Of Foreign Trade 


Throngs fill Japanese arcade in Tokyo as evening of coin-operated amusement 
begins. Interest has led to opening of several new amusement centers in city. 


today as a matter of course,” said 
Gisser. As this pastime is growing 
more popular on a worldwide level, 
and desires for amusement have 
found a common denominator. 

Gisser claims that while restric- 
tions still exist in some countries be- 
cause of the lack of dollar exchange 
this problem is rapidly being over- 
come. “We believe that within the 
next few years most of these restric- 
tions will have been completely elimi- 
nated.” 

The Cleveland Coin exec stated 
that while foreign countries today 
have made efforts to duplicate or 
manufacture American type equip- 
ment, the US products still command 
the greatest respect. “We look for- 
ward, at least in the near future, to 
a continued and increased demand 
for our merchandise,” said Gisser 

All in all, there is not a country 
in the free world today that doesn’t 
have at least one form of automatic 
equipment in operation. This tends to 
be quite an encouraging factor for 
Morris Gisser. As far as he’s con- 
cerned there isn’t a country in the 
world today that can’t use more top 
quality merchandise either. 


CLEVELAND, Ohio— Cleveland Coin 
Machine Exchange, Incorporated, has 
served the coin machine operator in 
this country for close to a genera- 
tion but that’s only half the story. 
The other half, or at least 30% of 
the firm’s volume, comes from serving 
buyers outside of the United States. 
The wholesaler’s export business, 
which started in a small way with 
phonographs, has blossomed over the 
years to the point where the company 
now services dozens of foreign coun- 
tries with all types of equipment. “As 
a matter of fact,” stated Morris 
Gisser, president of Cleveland Coin, 
“we’ve found a recent demand grow- 
ing for selective types of cold drink 
machines, ice cream, coffee and other 
automatic merchandise vendors.” 
Gisser has also enjoyed a recent 
expansion in the export sale of 
arcade equipment and Japan has 
ranked as one of the largest buyers 
of arcade machines from the firm. 
“The Japanese people, much like the 
Europeans, have tried the outdoor 
amusement arcade and they have en- 
joyed what they have seen. They take 
their amusement seriously and their 
enthusiasm is nothing unusual in this 


oriental land. Entire evenings are 
spent in neighborhood arcades much 
like the Belgium and German arcades 
which have prospered for many 
years.” 

The world has grown extremely 
small, according to Gisser, and he 
finds that the human element is the 
same all over the world. He stated 
that quality, responsibility, and de- 
pendability are appreciated in every 
land. Gisser said that 50% of the 
firm’s export business comes from 
regular customers who “no longer 
seek other sources.” 

A typical day in the Cleveland Coin 
export department will witness sev- 
eral calls from as far away places 
as Australia and Europe. Personal 
calls from leading coin machine buy- 
ers from foreign ports are not 
unusual. Gisser claims that his policy 
of “music being an international 
language” has helped pave the way 
for phonograph sales at the start in 
many countries. Gisser also noted 
that many countries considered back- 
ward in many other respects are more 
than receptive to automatic merchan- 
dising ideas. “Shuffle alleys and bowl- 
ers are accepted in most countries

msola^ CMC Score With UPI News Story 


NEW YORK — Lou Casola and his 
Coin Machine Council staff didn’t have 
too much time to spend with lumin- 
aries during their recent five-city pub- 
lic relations tour, but evidently presi- 
dent Casola and CMC made the most 
of every minute. 

A United Press International news 
story out of New York carried a head- 
line reading “Coin Machines Gaining 
Stature, Better Credit” and under it 
followed a story that related to untold 
numbers of readers, the truth of the 
coin machine industry. 

The article, reprinted here, ap- 
peared in the New York World- 
Telegram and Sun, New York City’s 
number one afternoon newspaper, and 
under the UPI credit line, the story 
could have appeared in as many as 
400 newspapers in the United States 
and elsewhere. The fruits of the tre- 
mendous accomplishment will not be 
known until all of the returns are in. 

Casola managed to get a concise 
and factual story before the news- 
paper people and they printed it prac- 
tically word for word. Referring to 
the recent McClellan Committee hear- 
ings, the article said, “the change in 
attitude (of bankers) stems from the 
1956 McClellan hearings which found 
among other things, that criminal in-

filtration was limited to a few areas 
and that ‘honest, legitimate people 
are in the great majority within the 
industry.’ ” 

The story goes on to advise readers 
of the number of machines on loca- 
tion, the average gross collections 
($10) per machine, and some data 
concerning the Coin Machine Council 
“information and fact-disseminating 
organization covering the juke and 
games business.” 

The article appeared in the Busi- 
ness-Finance section of the newspaper 
which holds claim to the greatest 
evening newspaper business-commu- 
nity readership in the City. 

The stop-off in New York City, by 
Casola and CMC representatives, was 
reported in The Cash Box that same 
week, but while optimism ran high, 
nothing quite so important was ex- 
pected in the way of accomplishments. 
It was CMC’s first trek into the metro- 
politan areas to stimulate member- 
ship among operators and distrib- 
utors. No doubt the tour was a vast 
success if only from the point of view 
of the New York victory. The World- 
Telegram & Sun did its share of cover- 
ing the adverse headlines only re- 
cently. The turnabout was obviously 
the result of intelligent planning and 
hard work by Casola and CMC. 

In stating the facts and figures of 
the industry, the article did point to 
the percentage of membership in 
CMC from the ranks of the coin ma- 
chine industry. It mentioned that 
about 50% of the manufacturers were 
members; about 90% of the distrib- 
utors had signed membership appli- 
cations and paid dues; but to date 
“only 10% of the operators in the 
United States” were on record as sup- 
porting the public relations program. 

Perhaps after the favorable reper- 
cussions, from the public and the 
banking world, the operator member- 
ship will increase. The Coin Machine 
Council and its president, Lou Casola, 
certainly deserve operator support.

Coin Machines Gaining 
Stature, Better Credit 


United Press International. 

The coin machine industry, 
long hampered by the stigma 
of gangster influence, is mak 
ing strong new claims on re 
spectability. 

Coin machine stocks are 
rising, a spotless bankruptcy 
record has led banks to re- 
duce loan rates to small coin 
machine operators, and other 
businesses are concluding that 
coin-operated games, juke- 
boxes and vending machines 
are big sales boosters. 

The change in attitude 
slefns from the 1956 McClel- 
lan hearings which found, 
among other things, that cfim- 
inal infiltration was limited 
to a few areas and that “hon- 
est, legitimate people are . in 
the great ipajority within the 
industry.” 

But just as Influential have 
been the recent efforts of the 
Coin Machine Council, first 
f a c t-disseminating organiza- 
tion covering the jukebox and 
g^mes segment of the indus- 
try, as well a^ vending. 

Formed two years ago, the 


council seeks to correct the 


racketeer-hoodlum cohcept of 


the industry, solidify it into 
a single-minded body, and 
gather industrywide business 
Statistics for the first time. It 
does not engage in lobbying, 
legislative or law enforcement 
activities. 


Of the coin machine manu- 
facturers, about 50 percent be- 
long to the council along vtath 
90 percent of the industry’s 
distributors. To date, how- 
ever, CMC claims only 10 per- 
cent membership from the 
coin operators, reflecting con- 
tact . problems. 

Louis A. Cassola, CMC' 
president, told United Press 
Intprnatiopal that the coun- 
cil’s. research so. far has un- 
covered 550,000 operating juke 
boxes and 300,000 coin-oper- 
afbd games in the nation, of 
which 15 percent are replaced 
annually with newer models. 

The average machine of 
both types grosses $10 a week, 
Mr. Cassola said, making in- 
dustry annual sales from juke 
boxes and games close to $450 
million. Currently, merchan- 
dise vending volume is around 
$3 billion a year..

Philadelphia Coin Meet Results in 
1 00% Pledged Support Of CMC 


PHILADELPHIA — Joe Silverman, 
president of the Amusement Machine 
Operators of Philadelphia, advised 
that last Tuesday’s (3/28) city-wide 
operator meeting in the Wynne Res- 
taurant resulted in “a unanimous 
pledge to back the Coin Machine 
Council 100%.” 

The meeting which was attended by 
every distributor in town, with each 
firm showing equipment from displays 
in the restaurant, was actually a min- 
iature convention. 

More than 90 coinmen turned out 
for the conference with representa- 
tives from the Philadelphia Broad 


Street Trust Company also attending. 

The meeting was held in conjunction 
with the association’s regular monthly 
meet and was called after Silverman 
and AMO officials met with CMC’s 
Lou Casola three weeks ago. At that 
time, Casola asked support from the 
Philadelphia branch of the industry 
and the called meeting was the result. 

The support came on the heels of a 
break in the nation’s newspapers (see 
separate story above) with CMC tell- 
ing its story on the finance pages of 
what was quickly becoming a large 
number of newspapers in the nation. 
The story went out over the UPI 
wires. 


Seeburg Sets Sales For 

CHICAGO — Stuart F. Auer, Vice 
President and Sales Manager of the 
Background Music Division of The 
Seeburg Corporation, this city, has 
announced the formation of a series 
of factory-owned Background Music

These branches are located for the 
most part in market areas where the

tem can be handled more efficiently, or 
where a suitable independent distrib- 
utor is currently not available. 

The offices are as follows: Chicago, 
Illinois, 925 W. North Avenue, Ralph 
Isacksen, Sales Manager; San Fran- 
cisco, California, 1424 Bush Street, 


Background Systems 

Stanley Raan, Sales Manager, Carl 
Adams, Service Manager; Hollywood, 
California, 1522 N. Van Ness Avenue, 
W. R. Traut, General Manager, John 
Malpne, Sales Manager, Mort Drooton, 
Assistant Sales Manager, Mark Tutel- 
man, Sales Representative; New York 
City, 680 Fifth Avenue, William Emig, 
Jr., Sales Manager. The New York 
office has been in operation for sev- 
eral months. 

A further announcement by Auer 
was the appointment of Edw. S. Cle- 
land as Midwest District Manager of 
the Seeburg Background Music Di- 
vision and William R. McEvoy in 
charge of distributor appointments in 
secondary markets.

Flight To MOA Show 


ED RATAJACK 


a good cross-section of music-coin 
firms. Records, phonographs and 
games along with vending should be 
well represented, according to Miller. 


NEW YORK — Operators in the 
metropolitan New York and sur- 
rounding areas can fly to the MOA 
Convention this year in style, via 
their own private plane. A1 Denver, 
president of MONY, has contacted 
the association’s membership, and 
also non-members, asking them to re- 
turn the necessary information in 
order that a chartered plane may be 
scheduled. 

“From all indications the conven- 
tion will be a great success,” said 
Denver, “and I believe that the coin- 
men with their wives aboard can en- 
joy a three-day trip to Miami for 
what amounts to a small vacation 
budget.” 

Double occupancy rooms can be had 
for as little as $9 per day. The MOA 
agenda features specially planned 
attractions for the wives with fashion 
and floor shows, gifts, boat rides, 
sightseeing trips, and fishing, swim- 
ming et al, on the planned program. 

“Combine business with pleasure 
and join us on a trip to Miami’s 
Deauville Hotel for the best MOA 
Convention ever,” concluded Denver.

No Intention Of Competing With 
Independent Operator” — Canteen 



FREDERICK L. SCHUSTER 


CHICAGO — Frederick L. Schuster, 
Chairman of the Board of Automatic 
Canteen Company of America, issued 
a statement concerning the activities 
and direction of his company in the 
coin-operated music field. 

Schuster said, “I wish to state as 
categorically as possible that Auto- 
matic Canteen is not planning to 
change the pattern of the distributor- 
ships it has acquired in the coin-op- 
erated phonograph field. None of 
these firms have in the past operated 
any significant number of phono- 
graphs, nor do we plan to have them 
do so in the months or years ahead. 

“The fact that we have consistently 
turned down the purchase of the 
many phonograph routes which have 
been offered to us is proof that we 
have no intention of competing with 
the independent music operator who 
is our customer.” 

Schuster emphasized Automatic 
Canteen’s interest in the music opera- 
tor by stating that, “in the foresee- 
able future, the firm may develop 
programs to assist the independent 
music operator in the conduct of the 
‘business’ phase of his operations, 
thus enabling him to secure the op- 
timum efficiency and profit from his 
venture.” 

“The continuing wholehearted sup- 
port which our AMI affiliate, alone 
among phonograph manufacturers 
has given Music Operators of 
America (M.O.A.) and the Public 


Relations Council is further proof of 
our concern for the welfare of the 
phonograph operator and our belief 
in the industry as an entity.” 


Arcade Operators 
Look To Bright 
# 61 Season 


NEW YORK — The arcade business 
shaped' up last week with fine es- 
timates of what can be expected in 
the spring and summer months ahead. 
Mike Munves, major arcade equip- 
ment supplier in the country, ad- 
vised that orders were “beyond ex- 
pectations.” So much so, continued 
Munves, that the firm’s recondition- 
ing crews were on overtime and 
delivery schedules were falling be- 
hind. 

As usual, the big factor in the ar- 
cade business is the weather, and no 
one could predict that. With good 
weather ahead, and indications that 
an early spring was expected, coin- 
men were buying the necessary equip- 
ment to plan new establishments and 
to renovate regular arcade sites. 

All in all, the picture looked bright 
for arcade men and the weather will 
tell the final story. 


CMC Head Addresses 
Bulk Vending Ops 


CHICAGO — The Coin Machine Coun- 
cil intends to organize and publicize 
every industry that is coin-operated 
and the peanut and ball gum opera- 
tors, bulk vendors, are no exception. 

The penny-nickel vendors held their 
annual NVA Convention two weeks 
ago here and Ben Rogers of CMC ad- 
dressed the group at the Sheraton 
Towers. “It would be a loss to you 
and to the nation if the bulk vending 
industry were to pass up the op- 
portunity to realize its great futre 
as the last hope of the small business- 
man,” stated Rogers.

"SHORT CUT TO BANKRUPTCY" 

50-50 Won’t Work In Britain, Either! 


LONDON, ENGLAND— British music 
machine operators were faced with a 
commission problem last month when 
the Phonograph Operators Association 
advised that several operators have 
been placing- machines with locations 
on a 50-50 basis. Representatives 
of POA advised that the operator 
“couldn’t exist” on such an agree- 
ment and that the outcome would be 
a resultant slowing of business at all 
levels of the industry. 

The spokesman was referring to the 
established fact here that operators 
can’t do business on these terms be- 
cause of the costs of doing business 
in the establishment. 

POA leaders noted that “there 


might be a fraction of 1% of the sites •; 
available that will return enough of a 
collection to warrant the 50-50 deal, 
but generally speaking the breakdown j 
is not in the operator’s favor.” 

“Such trading is a short cut to 
bankruptcy,” stated Bernard Briggs, 
chairman of the association. ^ ! , 

The POA pointed out that without 
the necessary collections the operator | 
is incapable of buying equipment and 
the effects could be felt all the way 
along the line. The POA recommended 
better rates depending on the location 
site and asked each operator to ad- ’ 
here to a sensible balance between lo- 
cation owner and himself.

Op Installs Background 
Music For State Hospital 

NEW YORK — Several months ago, 
the New York Public Relations Com- 
mittee traveled out to the Creedmore 
State Hospital on Long Island to do- 
nate a juke box to the children’s 
ward. The hospital officials were over- 
whelmed with the gesture, so they 
weren’t surprised when another coin- 
man, John Mazzuka, All-Coin Vend- 
ing Co., showed up recently to install 
a background music system for the 
mental institute — at no charge of 
course. Mazzuka is a member of the 
“Fun For Funds” organization in ad- 
dition to taking part in other philan- 
thropic activities throughout the city. 



John Mazzuka, All-Coin, demonstrates operation of background music 
system to Creedmore’s Dr. Harry La Burt, Director.
